At the OA Board meeting on 30th of March, a decision was made that Australia would not be sending athletes to JWOC 2021 due to ongoing travel restrictions and the COVID-19 situation in Turkey. Whilst unfortunate, the likelihood of this decision and the reasons behind it were signalled in the selection criteria.
If JWOC 2021 is postponed to later in the year, OA may reconsider the decision depending on circumstances at the time.
A formal presentation of the JWOC 2021 honour team will take place during the Australian Championships 2021 Tasmania in September.
