FIH bars Russia from taking part in Junior Women's WC for invasion of Ukraine

The
FIH
Junior
Women’s
Environment
Cup
is
scheduled
to
be
held
in
Potchefstroom,
South
Africa
from
April
1
to
12.

“Following
yesterday’s
suggestion
by
the
IOC
to
keep away from
the
participation
of
Russian
athletes
and
officers
in
intercontinental
competitions

in
get
to
shield
the
integrity
of
world
sporting activities
competitions
and
for
the
safety
of
all
participants

the
Executive
Board
(EB)
of
FIH
has
taken
the
choice
to
exclude
Russia
from
the
impending
FIH
Hockey
Women’s
Junior
Planet
Cup
scheduled
from
1
to
12
April
in
Potchefstroom,
South
Africa,”
the
FIH
stated
in
a
assertion.

The
FIH’s
choice
arrived
after
it
had
expressed
its
total
solidarity
to
the
users
of
Ukraine’s
hockey
local community
at
this
horrible
time
previously
this
week.

“FIH
is
in
regular
get in touch with
with
the
Hockey
Association
of
Ukraine
and
is
doing
its
utmost
to
supply
any
guidance
it
can,
in
the
hope
that
the
Ukrainian
team
will
be
ready
to
take part
in
the
future
FIH
Hockey
Women’s
Junior
Entire world
Cup,”
the
game’s
governing
overall body
reported.

“FIH
expresses
its
potent
hope
for
a
peaceful
resolution
fast.”
Russia’s
invasion
of
Ukraine
past
7 days
triggered
global
condemnation
and
the
place
is
getting
suspended
from
worldwide
sporting
occasions.
Most
just lately,
Russian
groups
have been
suspended
from
all
worldwide
football,
like
qualifying
matches
for
the
2022
Planet
Cup.

This
was
following
the
IOC
Govt
Board
issued
an
“urgent
advice
not
to
organise
any
athletics
event
in
Russia
or
Belarus.”

IOC
EB
also
strongly
urged
Worldwide
Sports
Federations
and
organisers
of
functions
to
“do
everything
in
their
energy
to
guarantee
that
no
athlete
or
athletics
official
from
Russia
or
Belarus
be
allowed
to
take
aspect
underneath
the
title
of
Russia
or
Belarus.”
