GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The USA Masters Games, scheduled to be held in Grand Rapids in June, has been postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The competition is an Olympics-style event for athletes over 21. The games are played in different cities each year, and Grand Rapids was its 2020 stop.

The decision was made in cooperation with the Meijer State Games of Michigan, the local organizers for the USA Masters Games.

Rescheduling a 24-sport event is a major undertaking, noted Mike Guswiler, President of the West Michigan Sports Commission in Grand Rapids, in a release. “We remain committed to bringing the participants a special Grand Rapids and West Michigan experience at the biggest and best USA Masters Games ever!” he said.
