The second day of 12th Congress in Chisinau started with the usual routine of the roll call, continuing with remaining motions to change the IBU Event and Competition Rules and their Annexes. Some modifications have already been in practice and were adopted anonymously without further discussions, while other motions were discussed in detail before solutions were found for the future. The first session was closed by the President’s announcement that Nove Mesto had withdrawn its bid for the 2020 WCH and 13th IBU Congress in 2018. The Nove Mesto WCH bid for 2021 remains in place, however. The announcement of WCH 2020 and 2021 bidding results will be broadcasted live tomorrow on biathlonworld.com
