This is a real tragedy. If the puzzles were an Olympic game, it would be even worse.

I know the speed solving on paper those championships are focused in is hardly appliable in this situation, but online speed solving is also a thing, and this could be a chance to expand on that (as a possible alternative).
I've seen that in Crossword contests and I believe Nikoli has organized some online speed-based events for Sudoku too.
