The International Blind Sport Federation (IBSA) Judo Committee has moved its Grand Prix competition in Baku to Antalya due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Despite the switch to Turkey, the event will still be organised by the National Paralympic Committee of Azerbaijan.

IBSA confirmed that the dates of the competition have been slightly modified, with May 23 now the official arrival day when all teams will be tested for COVID-19.

Those attending the event must remain in their rooms until receiving a negative result, with May 24 listed as a quarantine day, Inside The Games reported.

Classification is then scheduled for between May 25 and 27 before competition between May 28 and 29. Teams are scheduled to leave Antalya on May 30.

Previously, the competition days in Baku were May 24 and 25. The deadline to enter the event has been set as April 9.
