The World Benchrest Federation has decided to delay the championship from April 2021 to September 2021. There is some discussion on the possibility of canceling the entire 2021 event and holding the next one in 2023 in South Africa. It can only be held every other year due to the fact that the World Rimfire Championship is held on the even years and has been moved to 2022.
In the event that the 2021 championship is canceled any qualifying for the US team held in 2020 for the 2021 event will be null and void. The United States will qualify for the 2023 event in 2022.
