Updates from Technical Congress and the Virtual World Jump Rope Championship


The International Jump Rope Union (IJRU) decided to host an online virtual world championship in 2021. It will replace the championship scheduled for July 2021 in Ottawa, Canada. The Virtual World Championship series will include:

  • Virtual World Cup
  • Virtual World Junior Championships
  • Virtual international open tournament

Given health and safety concerns as well as global travel insecurity, this solution is the best way for the IJRU to remain active in 2021.

At the same time, the Technical Congress met by videoconference on 24 October 2020 to vote on changes to the rules for the IJRU 2021 Virtual Championship. 21 national organizations (NGBs) were represented at the meeting, each NGB with 1 vote and 2 delegates changes.
