The 2009 world's are being shifted from Poznan to Prague. There was a conflict with the World Rowing Championships.
While this is great (a chance to visit Prague), I can't understand how it could happen. I just checked the International Rowing Federation website, and they've got the dates and locations of their world championships posted up to 2011. Same for the ICF.
How could the IDBF announce they were having their worlds in Poznan at the same time as the rowing worlds were being held there? Did the IDBF talk to the local organizers? Did the local organizers not know the rowers were coming?
