Deaflympics 2021 in Bowling

As you may be aware, the Organizing Committee had decided to remove the bowling venue from the Summer Deaflympics in Caxias do Sul due to the organisation’s ‘considerable economic impact’ of the sanctions placed against Belarus and Russia. Their athletes are forbidden from participating in any international competitions. For review of the OC’s decision, view the announcement by visiting - "ICSD calls for peace ahead of the 2021 Summer Deaflympics in Brazil".

However, the ICSD is very pleased to announce that the bowling venue for the 24th Deaflympics is not canceled. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has graciously accepted being the host city. It will take place on 20 - 30 October 2022. The Deaflympics awards ceremony for bowling at the new host city will remain the same as what had been planned at Caxias do Sul, including the design of the medals.

The ICSD is deeply indebted to Malaysian Deaf Sports Association for their willingness and for their hard work to make the relocation for the Deaflympics 2022 in Bowling be made possible in their country.
