The New Zealand boxing team will have to come up with a new plan after their Asia/Oceania Olympic qualifying tournament has been postponed.
Sources have told Newshub it will now take place between March 3-11, but a host city still needs to be confirmed.
The competition was scheduled to take place in the Chinese city of Wuhan early next month. But on Thursday (NZ time) the International Olympic Committee cancelled it due to concerns around the coronavirus outbreak.
Hundreds of cases of the illness have been recorded in Wuhan, located near the centre of China, east of Shanghai. It has spread from there to other Chinese cities and then to other countries, including Japan, the United States and Thailand.
Chinese authorities have advised people to stop travelling in and out of the city.
There have been over 630 confirmed cases of the flu-like virus and 18 deaths.
The Kiwi boxing team of five men and four women is currently in Thailand but will return to New Zealand in the coming days.
It is a challenge for the New Zealand boxers and they'll have to train again to peak at the right time, while most will have to fork out more money to take part.
Despite that, medal hopeful David Nyika said the team is "staying focussed and working hard."
