World Junior Racquetball Championships - Final results? Not yet

In an unbelievable decision, the page for the 21st World Junior Racquetball Championships currently (1 PM Central time Sunday) states:
The tournament director has requested to turn off the live results to keep the results secret until the awards ceremony at 4:30 pm local time. You can continue to view the draws to check for the latest winners.

This includes disabling the media reporting function on the site.

This is simply preposterous. Who is this helping? We know it's hurting anyone who has a passing interest in the event.

This is the kind of non-cooperation that the International Racquetball Federation (IRF) has been accused of by many, including the European Racquetball Federation (ERF), which led to their resignation from the IRF.

The Racquetball Blog staff is doing a collective head shake at this poor decision. Unbelievable.

Follow the bouncing ball....
