Lake Placid officials are continuing to prepare for the 2023 Winter World University Games following word that the 2021 games have been cancelled.
The organizing committee for the 2021 Winter University Games, the largest winter multi-sport event for collegiate athletes, announced Monday that this year’s games scheduled from December 11th to the 21st in Lucerne, Switzerland are off.
FISA officials say restrictions on international travel following the identification of the COVID-19 Omicron variant left them with no other choice. Ashley Walden, Chief Operating Officer for the 2023 games in Lake Placid, said they are continuing to prepare as planned.
