What are the rules of the new Olympic game? When are the Gold Medal Games held? When is Team GB star Shauna Coxsey in action?

Sport climbing will make its Olympic debut in Tokyo as the world’s best climbers aim for gold.

The inclusion of this sport in the Tokyo Games is undoubtedly one of the most worthy.


Sport climbing set to make Olympic debut in Tokyo

The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) website states that the sport is growing in popularity, with approximately 25 million people around the world regularly climbing.

It has reached a true global audience in recent years and will now be played on the biggest stage – the Olympics.

With Shauna Coxsey aiming for glory, the GB team has a real chance of winning a medal.

Climbing Games in Tokyo 2020

The event will take place at Aomi Urban Sports Park and will consist of three disciplines: speed climbing, bouldering and lead climbing.

In speed climbing, two athletes tie themselves to ropes and compete on a fixed route to the top of a 15 meter high wall.


Shauna Coxsey is Team GB’s sole representative in climbing sport.

As a boulder, climbers climb as many fixed routes as possible on a four-meter wall in four minutes – without safety ropes.

In lead climbing, athletes try to climb a 15 meter high wall as high as possible in 6 minutes and if two people reach the same height, the one who does it the fastest wins.

Each athlete would compete in all three disciplines, meaning only two gold medals could be achieved.

Scores will be calculated by multiplying each competitor’s ranking in the three disciplines and the climber with the lowest overall score wins.
