Sport climbing will see its debut at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. Two events will be held, one for men and one for women. The proposed format will consist of three disciplines: lead climbing, speed climbing and bouldering. The winner will be determined based on who performs best in all three disciplines.
There are 40 quota spots available for sport climbing. Each National Olympic Committee can obtain a maximum of 2 spots in each event (total 4 maximum across the 2 events). Each event will have 20 competitors qualify: 18 from qualification, 1 from the host (Japan), and 1 from Tripartite Commission invitations.
goodBETA is here to provide information, inspiration and important resources for all things climbing in South Africa. Moreover, we want to create a central, national hub that serves as a welcoming and friendly community for all those seeking adventure in the mountains.
