The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Governing Board has approved the venue masterplan for the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games.
The Board signed off the five competition venues proposed by the Beijing 2022 Organising Committee, as well as the use of three Paralympic villages in different clusters.
The approval came during three days of meetings which took place from 22-24 June in Bonn, Germany.
In addition, the Board agreed the new composition of several IPC Standing Committees and the first Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games technical delegates, both of which will be announced in due course. The Board also formally endorsed the appointment of Sir Philip Craven, the former IPC President, to the Board of Directors of the Toyota Motor Corporation and signed off the audited accounts for 2017.
A final decision on whether Para bobsleigh will be included in the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games was deferred until September. The sport was provisionally accepted onto the programme in September 2016 pending the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation meeting a number of conditions.
During the meeting the Board received an update on preparations from the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee and was also brought up to date on the IPC Governance Review which began in May. Next steps were agreed ahead of September’s IPC Membership Gathering in Madrid, Spain.
