Sport Climbing Tokyo Olympics

2nd Aug 2021 5th Aug 2021

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 climbingspeed 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.[10]

The 2019 IFSC Climbing World Championships served as one qualification event with 7 spots per gender being awarded to the top finishers of the combined event.

Christopher Cosser and Erin Sterkenburg filled the Africa quota through the selection at the African Continental Championships held at CityROCK Cape town in December 2020.
