TOKYO, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- The women's ski jumping World Cup scheduled for January 2021 has been canceled amid logistical, health and safety challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers said on Saturday.

The event was to be held between January 15 and 17 at the famous Zao ski resort in northeastern Japan's Yamagata Prefecture.

Organizers said it would prove too difficult to solve practical problems such as travel and accommodation support for athletes and officials from overseas, as well as infection control. Enditem
