UK DEAF SPORT STATEMENT ON THE 2017 DEAFLYMPICS, SAMSUN, TURKEY:
As with any overseas travel we monitor the FCO website for any emerging advice. We recognise that it is still 12 months until the Deaflympics and a lot can happen in that time. However at this stage we anticipate that the event will proceed as planned. The safety of our athletes and officials will be paramount at all times. We do of course hope that the situation will stabilise but are in contact with contact with colleagues domestically and internationally and will continue to monitor the emerging situation.
