US Equestrian Federation Statement on the 2020 Olympic Games

USEF STATEMENT:

We have received confirmation that the IOC and Organizing Committee of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games have jointly decided to postpone the Tokyo 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games to 2021. While we are all extremely disappointed the Tokyo 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games will not move forward as planned this summer, we fully support the decision to postpone to 2021, prioritizing athlete, staff, and spectator safety and health during this challenging time. We are awaiting details on the approach the Organizing Committee, USOPC and FEI will take to the significant logistical changes at hand and also whether the Games will mirror the schedule we anticipated for this summer or operate on a revised timeline. We are starting to analyze the operational and financial impact of this decision and will begin the review process of selection procedures as soon as we have pertinent information and a better understanding of new timetables.

Please regularly visit your Discipline specific webpage and if you have any urgent questions or concerns contact your Discipline Director.  We will also continue to post general information and advice on https://www.usef.org/compete/coronavirus
