July 13, 2021
Due to the pandemic and related mitigation measures, the Shanghai Organising Committee (OC) believes that it is not feasible to stage the 2021 World Rowing Championships and has proposed to cancel the event.
Taking into account all information received, the World Rowing Executive Committee has accepted this proposal and decided to cancel the event.
An official statement read: “World Rowing very gratefully acknowledges the hard work of the Shanghai OC and the Chinese Rowing Association, and considerable investments into rowing made by the Government of Shanghai and looks forward to the time when international rowing can come back to China.”
