We are saddened by the barbaric invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Government.  
Our prayers go out for our Ukrainian and Russian friends and relatives who are severly affected by this tragic action.  


It has been decided that out of respect and in solidarity with our Ukrainian family, the 2022 GPA/IPO world Championships are cancelled.

The announcement from President Leo Cavaglia:

"As President of GPA IPO I address all the members of the countries to communicate that in this year 2022 the World Championships will not be held, which we expect everyone in 2023 in Brazil.
