The new variant of Kovid-19 ‘Omicron’ has started showing its impact on sports. In this episode, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has decided to postpone the Junior Women’s Hockey World Cup. This prestigious was to be held in South Africa from December 5 to 16.

The FIH, the South African Hockey Federation and the North-West University of Potchefstroom have jointly decided that the tournament will not be held “under the current circumstances”. Significantly, new variants have been detected in South Africa itself, due to which concerns have arisen about this virus.

FIH CEO Thierry Weil said in a statement: “Everyone’s safety is the first priority at FIH competitions. Apart from this, many countries including partner countries have increased travel restrictions with South Africa. Therefore it is not possible to organize this competition according to the pre-determined schedule.

The last edition of this tournament was held in the year 2016 in Santiago, Chile. That year Argentina won the competition for the second time after beating the Netherlands 4–2. This time 16 teams were going to participate in Potchefstroom. Forward Lalremsiami, a member of the senior women’s team that finished fourth in the Tokyo Olympics, was given the responsibility of captaining the 18-member Indian team in this tournament.

Corona’s new variant B.1.1.529 (Omicron) was first found in South Africa on 24 November. The World Health Organization (WHO) said that after the B.1.1.1.529 variant was exposed in South Africa, a huge increase in infection has been observed. The WHO said that this variant has many mutations, many of which are of concern.
