Neues Gerücht – Weltmeisterschaft doch in Spanien (1 Update)

von Hannes
Ist das das WM-Bad?
Ist das das WM-Bad?

Update am 11.05.: Das Gerücht wurde inzwischen offiziell bestätigt.

Die Unterwasser-Rugby Weltmeisterschaft könnte nun doch in Spanien stattfinden, genauer in Santa Marta de Tormes, Salamanca (200km von Madrid).
Von der CMAS war bisher noch nichts Offizielles zu hören, aber in einem Italienischen UWR Blog steht etwas darüber, u.a. ein Luftbild vom Bad und ein Link zu Google Maps.
Laut dem Bericht soll die WM bereits vom 10. bis 16. August stattfinden.

Was da dran ist weiss ich nicht, es verbreitet sich jedenfalls recht schnell (und ich helf auch mit *g*).
Kann dieses Gerücht jemand bestätigen oder widerlegen? Weiss jemand etwas genaueres?

    Hallo,
    wir haben eine Information – über Umwege – von einem spanischen Verein.
    Der Verband oder ich als Sektionsleiter wurden nicht direkt informiert.
    Eine offizielle Bestätigung durch die CMAS UWR Kommission – bereits vor mehreren Tagen von Sören erbeten – steht noch aus.

    Nun würde mich ja brennend interessieren wie viele Nationen teilnehmen.
    Sören hatte so von 15 Mannschaften gemailt, ich bin mal gespannt ob es
    doch einige mehr sind.

    Im Endeffekt haben wir doch das was wir wollten. Die WM findet statt und wir müssen uns keine Arbeit machen.

    Mal schauen was ein Flug kostet.

    Beste Grüße

    Heute MIttag erhalten:

    Dear All
    Distribute this information to all the responsible Underwater Rugby contacts in your federation.
    We have an issue about the planned World Championship 2009 in Spain.
    The pool do not reach the required measurements (See attached picture).
    My question is. Can your federation/national team accept, that the pool is not deep enough?
    I will gather your answers and make an decision about keeping an WC-2009 or cancel it, based on the replies received.
    You federations answer must be send to neubs@cmas.org before May 22 – 2009 to count as an input.
    Best regards Søren Neubert

    Konkret:
    Pool ist nur auf eine Breite von 5 M 3,50 tief und steigt bis 8 m Breite auf 3 m an, bis 10 m auf 2,80 m. Dafür ist der Pool aber 21 m lang.

    Da bin ich ja mal gespannt, was da entschieden wird.

    Schwedens Antwort auf die Poolfrage:

    Dear Sören

    Your question regarding if our federation/national team accepts to play WC 2009 in the pool suggested has now been discussed by the Swedish Sportsdiving federation, the UW-rugby committee and out national teams. I am glad to say that we have reached a unanimous decision.

    Our athletes together with our newly updated international rules form the foundation which guarantees that UW-rugby at its best is being played during international championships. Out of respect for the athletes as well as the sport itself, the rules should therefore be followed when international championships are being organized.

    The current pool does not in any way meet this requirement. Based on this Sweden does not intend to participate in WC 2009 if it is being played in the pool now suggested.
    Our suggested way forward is that;

    · Spain provides a pool that fulfills the stated rules for UW-rugby. We recommend that the new pool is situated in a city with extensive international travel connections and that the championship also is moved forward in time to allow proper planning.

    · If Spain can´t find a suitable pool, advertise for another country to arrange the WC late this year. What happened to the Danish application? In case another organizer is found, Sweden could possibly contribute with organizing staff.

    · Cancel WC 2009 and advertise for an organizing country for WC 2010.
    The most important thing right now is that all alternatives are being properly looked into so that a decision can be taken on well-laid plan.

    For the future our suggestion is that a country, when applying for a championship, also is obligated to provide a pool that fulfills the stated rules for UW-rugby. Furthermore Sweden asks for a broad discussion regarding the future of UW-rugby WC.

    Finally, on behalf of the Swedish UW-rugby society, I would like to thank you for the great and dedicated work you are doing as Chairman of the UW-rugby commission. Thanks!

    Sincerely
    Fredrik Åström
    Chairman of the Swedish UW-rugby committee

    Statement aus der Türkei mit Bezug zur deutschen Entscheidung. Hat jemand dazu Infos??

    Dear All,

    On the behalf of the Turkish UWR Comittee, We also agree with our Swedish and German Colleagues that the pool in Spain does not fulfill the requirement for “an official tournament”. Therefore, we do not want to play in this pool. We believe that there are many appropriate pools in Europe. We have three appropriate pools in izmir. If the WC is postponed, we can also suggest pools from Turkey to our international UWR-community.

    I also agree with the broad discussion on the UWR. We should be focus on the educational activities (trainer education, spread of UWR to other countries where UWR is not known/played, scientific background of this sport, effects of UWR training/play on human physiology etc).

    With best regards,
    Levent CAVAS
    Head of Turkish UWR Comittee in Turkish UW Sports Federation

    Kurz vor 12 eingegangen:

    Dear All,

    Distribute this information to all the responsible Underwater Rugby contacts in your federation.

    I am sad to bring this information, but the WC-2009 in UW-Rugby is canceled.

    The final decision is taken on the response from the federation about this matter.

    The response is, that a majority of the federations cannot accept the pool, because the given pool do not reach the necessary requirement. Second is that the lack of time to arrange another pool in Spain 2009. Therefore we have to cancel the UW-Rugby WC-2009 in Spain, and look for a host to take on the responsibility in the fall 2010.

    So I will ask you all in your federations to work for your possibility to arrange the WC-2010 in your country and return with answers to me. The pool should be situated in or near a major city with good international connection.

    Spain is off cause still welcome to take on the responsibility in 2010, but we have to point out that pool has to fulfill the necessary minimum requirements (best near the max requirements) and that the pool is situated in or nearby a city with good international connection.

    If any of you have any questions don´t hesitate to write.
    Finally I have to thank Spain for trying to put together a WC-2009 in UW-Rugby in so short a notice. It could have been good, just sadly that the pool missed.

    Best regards Søren Neubert / CMAS UW-Rugby commission president
