Dear friends and ICG family,
with this post we wish to inform you about the postponement of the 9th International Children's Winter Games 2021 in the city of Pyeongchang, Republic of Korea.
As the COVID-19 pandemic still doesn't allow for big events such as International Children's Games the Organizing Committee for the 9th ICG Winter Games has taken the most responsible decission to move the event to 2022.
The most honourable Han Wang-kee, Mayor of Pyeongchang, writes in his letter to the ICG Executive Committee:
"We understand that this news will be disappointing for many people who has been waiting for the games. (...) also, we would like to express our sincere thanks to every cities answering the invitation, a great friend and supporter in spite of those global issues. (...) once again, we appreciate all of your supports and cooperation for our organization. Wishing you, your families and your friends first of all good health and all the best, with kind regards. We will see you at Pyeongchang 2022."
We do hope so, too, and send you all our warmest greetings - stay safe and healthy!Torsten Rasch
