2021 Summer Deaflympics.

The 2021 Summer Deaflympics, officially known as the XXIV Summer Deaflympic Games, and commonly known as Caxias 2021, is the international multi-sport event that was held in Caxias do Sul, Brazil, as the main host city from 1 May to 15 May 2022. 

In addition to Caxias, there were events scheduled for the neighboring cities of Farroupilha and Flores da Cunha. On April 12, 2022, CISS has announced that due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russian and Belarussian athletes were barred from competing in Caxias do Sul, and in the same press release it was also announced that the bowling tournament was scheduled to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, during October 20–30, 2022.

This is the first time the Games are being held in a Latin American country, in a South American country, and not during the summer of the host city (as it is autumn in May in the south of Brazil). This is also the first time since the 2007 Winter Deaflympics, held in Salt Lake City, for the event to be held in the CISS Americas Region, and the third time for the Games to be held in the Southern Hemisphere as the 1989 games were held in Christchurch in New Zealand and 2005 games Melbourne in Australia.
