China Banned Extreme Sports

Due to Extreme weather hit at the Forest trail race in Gansu province a few hours into the race on 22 May and death caused because of this, China has banned extreme sports like trail running and wingsuit flying.

The General Administration of Sport announced the suspension on Wednesday. This authority will review sports events, accelerate improvements of the management system, improve standards and regulations, etc., to ensure the safety of sports events.
The administration also announced to cancel other high-risk events in the lead-up to next month’s celebrations of the Chinese Communist party’s centenary to ensure “a good environment and atmosphere.”
Many race events have been canceled and postponed after considering the Gansu incident.

The concern is also raised that the incident was happened due to the irresponsibility of awareness of the changing weather.

Several reports of the Gansu disaster hinted at preliminary predicament plans and communication to local rescue authorities, who strived to access the terrain and locate stranded competitors. However, several hours passed between the first messages for help and the full deployment of rescue teams.

The commentators also noted an explosion while endurance running in China.
Tourism officials often see a race as an opportunity to promote their region.

In its announcement, the administration said the incident was “in part due to sudden weather changes [and] caused a significant loss of human life – a lesson imbued with deeply felt grief.

China high-level authorities are also working on further interrogation.

Although banning popular sports like marathons, trail racing, running, etc., is like crossing this line of personal freedom. Incidents happen every time, but it doesn’t mean that we start banning stuff. However, by now, the violations have been increasingly common under President Xi Jinping. But it may be chances that it can be unbanned by time considering people’s choice.
