Malaysia has been stripped of hosting the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships for refusing to let Israeli athletes compete, says the International Paralympic Committee.

The IPC also says Malaysian authorities failed to comply with protocols relating to anthems, flags and providing relevant visas.

“All World Championships must be open to all eligible athletes and nations to compete safely and free from discrimination,” said IPC president Andrew Parsons.

“When a host country excludes athletes from a particular nation, for political reasons, then we have absolutely no alternative but to look for a new championships host.

The event is due to begin on 24 July.
