Grand Slam Brasilia about to be cancelled

The Grand Slam in Brasilia, scheduled to be held in October is in danger and the Brazilian Judo Confederation notified the IJF two weeks ago to cancel the Grand Slam of Brasilia. The decision was deliberated and approved by the CBJ Board of Directors on meeting, but the IJF doesn’t yet accept the cancellation.

Frankly speaking there was not enough money for the event. Recently the license for the Grand Prix in The Hague was taken away as financial problems were foreseen. The Brazilian Judo Federation understands that, with the current financial scenario, it is impossible to comply with the organisation of the Grand Slam.

Given the cancellation the word is now to the IJF to take steps, confirm the cancellation or propose a solution.
