The Luxembourg Athletics Foundation has cancelled five indoor meetings in total this January, as Covid cases soar in the Grand Duchy.

The CMCM event, which would have seen around 140 international athletes from 30 different countries take part, has been cancelled over Covid fears as the Omicron variant has taken hold in Luxembourg and the rest of Europe.

The FLA said it hopes next year's edition, which will be the event's 20th anniversary, will proceed as normal.
