Dear Athletes, Volunteers, Family Members, and Supporters,

With the record setting bad weather continuing in the forecast, we have made the decision to move ahead with the swimming portion of the competition. We want to be very clear that this will be a swim competition only. The weather has led to a significant attrition in Athletes, Volunteers and venue availability, thus the following changes have been made or are highly likely.

Competition Changes

  • No meals will be provided (location no longer available, due to weather)
  • No outdoor sports (Bocce, Golf, and Softball) or activities will be offered
  • Delegations will not be charged for athletes not attending.
  • No Olympic Village or Healthy Athletes

Opening Ceremonies

The Opening Ceremonies and Celebration Dance are still under review at this time, but it is highly likely they will have to be cancelled as well.

We are so grateful to all the volunteers that have put in tremendous efforts to make these games spectacular. It is so often that we forget about all the preparation that goes into these major events, and we want to say thank you for all that has been done. We realize that so many will not see the fruits of your labor this year, but we appreciate everything you have done.
