The International Judo Federation announces with regret the cancellation of the 2022 Grand Slam in Kazan, Russia, which was planned to be held 20th to 22nd May 2022.

We are saddened by the current international situation, the result of inefficient dialogue at international level.

We, the sports community, must remain united and strong, to support each other and our universal values, in order to always promote peace and friendship, harmony and unity.

The judo family hopes that the current unrest can be solved in the last moment, to re-establish normality and stability in Eastern Europe and the world, to once again be able to focus on the diverse cultures, history and legacy of Europe, in the most positive way.

Marius L. Vizer President - International Judo Federation
