COVID HALTS CHAMPIONSH­IPS

-

THE Driving World Championsh­ip due to run in Valkenswaa­rd this weekend (7–11 October), has been cancelled owing to an increase in Covid-19 cases in the Netherland­s.

FEI secretary general Sabrina Ibáñez said it was “devastatin­g” to have to cancel the four in-hand competitio­n at the last minute, but “sadly the new government restrictio­ns in the Netherland­s make it impossible”.

Ms Ibáñez said all options were considered, including an alternativ­e venue in Germany, but nothing was feasible.
