The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

The LPGA Tour lost another tournament when the Canadian Women's Open was canceled because of travel restrictions and quarantine requirements from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CP Women's Open was scheduled for Sept. 3-6 at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver. The LPGA Tour and Golf Canada say it will return to Shaughnessy the last week in August next year.

"I understand this was a tough decision for everyone involved, but given the restrictions faced, there was simply nothing else that could be done that would have enabled us to run the event in 2020," LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan says.

The rest of the rugby sevens world series has been canceled and New Zealand declared winners of the men's and women's titles.

The Hong Kong, Singapore, Langford, London and Paris legs were postponed but World Rugby canceled them after discussion with all of the host unions.

New Zealand was awarded the titles for leading the standings when the coronavirus pandemic stopped the series after six of the 10 men's rounds and four of the five women's rounds.

South Africa was second and Fiji third in the men's series. Australia was second and Canada third in the women's.
