The IPC Bureau has issued the following statement with regard to the 4-Way Indoor Formation Skydiving Junior Event in this competition:

"The Chair of the FS committee received notification of intent from France and Canada and the organisers have also received informal indications from Czech Republic and Singapore that they plan to send teams for the 4-Way IFS Junior event. This means that currently we have four teams (NACs) wishing to compete in the junior competition.

Please be informed, that the position of the IPC-Bureau will be an analogy to that of the CF-event in Saarlouis, in other words, the Junior 4-Way IFS event in Laval will take place and the title of a champion will be awarded, provided a minimum of 3 NACs have entered the event by the final registration date."
