Brazil picked for 2013 WMA world championships? Doubt it
With no fanfare, World Masters Athletics has announced venues for its 2012 world indoor and 2013 world outdoor championships. Yeah, right. But what’s up with the Eurovets Web site? Its 2012 meet calendar lists JyvÃ¤skylÃ¤, Finland, as site of WMA worlds, and its 2013 meet calendar lists outdoor worlds for July 24 – August 2 in Porto Alegre, Brazil (which lost to Sacramento for 2011 worlds). WMA’s Web site doesn’t list meets beyond 2011. Of course, these meets are up to voters at the Lahti General Assembly this summer — not some stooge webmaster at the EVAA. Expect this to be cleared up pretty fast. (Porto Alegre in midwinter should be delightful!)
Here’s how the Eurovets calendar looked on May 5, 2009.
