The Rio de Janeiro Organizing Committee and World Rowing have identified March 4th to 6th 2021 as the new proposed dates for the staging of the Americas Olympic and Paralympic Continental Qualification Regatta for Tokyo2020 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The new dates will see Bermuda Olympic hopeful Dara Alizadeh looking to make his mark to head to Tokyo.
The Rio Organizing Committee is now working towards these dates to deliver the event in line with current Covid-19 event staging guidelines which were developed by World Rowing based on WHO guidelines and respecting guidelines of the public health authorities in Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. World Rowing is applying its decision-making protocol which considers the current pandemic situation in the host country and city, travel and quarantine restrictions affecting the teams, and the implementation of the Covid response plans by the OC.
