当日夜、グランドマスターズ役員 terry watt 氏よりメールがあり
Friday 13th July 2012
Andy Bondor has just confirmed today that the World Championship scheduled for Brazil is cancelled. I will try to inform you, as soon as I know, if there still is a possibility to have the event somewhere else in 2012.
As a direct reaction to this disappointment an attempt will be made to establish dates and venues for future Worlds at various meetings during the Olympics – Therefore if you are involved with your Federation you should consider preparing a bid as soon as possible and talk with Andy.
I do not know what went wrong in Brazil but the IJF Grand Masters Commission’s main efforts will be to try to make sure that this does not happen again.
Please pass thE decision about the cancellation on to all your judo friends and your Federation.
