Earthquake in Turkey-Syria

On behalf of the Virtus family, we would like to extend our thoughts and wishes to the people of Turkey and Syria following the series of earthquakes in recent days. We hope that the ongoing search and rescue efforts bring better news and wish everyone involved in the affected areas safer days ahead.

9.2.2023 – At this time it is anticipated that the Virtus World & European Athletics Championships will go ahead as planned in Istanbul in March. This however remains subject to approval from the national government of Turkey – participating nations are encouraged to liaise closely with the LOC and to be vigilant to announcements from the Turkish officials.
