The International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation announced today that the Ukrainian Federation has cancelled its hosting of the 2014 Junior Water Ski World Championships, originally scheduled to take place in August in Dnepropetrovsk.
"The organizers had hoped that the situation would calm down well before the tournament was scheduled to take place," the IWWF announced in a statement. "Unfortunately this is not the case, and with the political situation as it is, it was better to make the decision now rather than wait any longer. The IWWF is already in negotiation with another organizer and as soon as the venue and dates are finalized, all Federations will be notified immediately."
