Canada, Great Britain and New Zealand have all withdrawn from the upcoming Universiade. Australia and USA won’t be sending athletes in swimming, unclear about other sports.

 

Main issues from GB appear to be Russia/Belarus (now resolved as they are banned), Covid-19 and travel restrictions (in particular the extensive regulations being required by China/organising committee, as athletes for these games are self funded and receive limited organisational support)

Swimming Australia pulls out of the 2021 Summer University Games 

 

Swimming Australia wishes to advise that it will no longer be sending a team to compete in the FISU World University Games in Chengdu, China, from June 26-July 7, 2022," a Swimming Australia statement read.

 

"Following the withdrawal of our Pan Pacific Partners USA Swimming and Swimming Canada, a decision has been made to seek alternative competition opportunities that best serve the development of our athletes.

 

"With this in mind, a team will now be selected at the Australian Swimming Championships in May to compete in the US National Championships in Irvine, California in July.

Thanks but no thanks.  Plenty other sporting meets out there this summer.

Yea the Chengdu games are an after thought and many countries have withdrawn already (and likely many more will)
