The final men's sitting volleyball qualifying event for this year's Paralympic Games in Tokyo is now scheduled to take place in Duisburg from June 1 to June 4.
World ParaVolley had originally planned to hold the qualifying event in Oklahoma in the United States in March 2020.
This was moved to the German city of Duisburg and rescheduled to February 15 to 19 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the postponement of Tokyo 2020.
Competition had to be delayed once again, however, after the number of coronavirus cases in several countries rose drastically last month.
Hosts Germany are one of seven teams set to compete for the final Tokyo 2020 place on the new dates in May and June.
They will battle against the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Croatia, Latvia and Kazakhstan.
Paralympic hosts Japan, world champions Iran, China, Russia, Brazil, Egypt and Bosnia and Herzegovina have already qualified for the Paralympics, which are now scheduled to take place in the Japanese capital from August 24 to September 5.
The women's qualification process for Tokyo 2020 is already complete, with the final event held pre-pandemic last February.
