The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Organising Committee has announced that eight International Federations have been shortlisted for potential inclusion in the programme of the Games and will participate in phase II of the selection process:
Unfortunately, FAI, which proposed Paragliding Accuracy and Paragliding Cross Country as potential events, is not part of this list.
Although air sports didn't make the cut this time, FAI will continue to work hard to see its next attempt to be included in future Olympic Games successful.

The FAI is continuing its actions to keep air sports clean from doping.
In that frame, we are trying to inssure that all athletes participating in FAI sanctioned events (any event registered in the FAI Calendar) and who may therefore be subject to doping control must request a TUE before taking a prohibited medication.
But ... what is a TUE?
