It is a very challenging period for the world as it is a global pandemic which is affecting globally, no events related to the sport were organized in this period, everything just got postponed.

Australia is one of the countries that are badly affected by the wave of virus therefore in March the officials sealed the borders to avoid international travel although some exception was made for professional athletes who were OK with days of quarantine.
Although most of the countries are now controlled Australia is still struggling to control the virus. Thereby all the events that were going to be held in Australia have been either canceled or postponed to early 2021.
