International Paraclimbing Cup Arco, the results
On 6 September 2013, thirty athletes from 10 nations competed in the Arco International Paraclimbing Cup 2013. An exciting moment marked, above all, by great climbing.
Yesterday the legendary Climbing Stadium hosted the International Paraclimbing Cup, the competition for the disabled that here in Arco, in 2011, held the first ever Paraclimbing World Championship. This commitment to the Paraclimbing movement was solidified that same year when Baone became the world's first crag designed specifically for the disabled, while in 2012 Arco hosted a stage of the Paraclimbing Cup. And yesterday, once again, the best Paraclimbers in the world returned to Arco to put themselves to the test. Their first round started at 10:00 and this was followed at 14:00 by a second round, by no means. Two beautiful moments, touching, packed with excitement and also intense climbing.
Thirty athletes split into their respective categories fought their way up the routes and once again their determination, skill and technique impress everyone. Once again the Paraclimbers proved spectacular as they battled like true athletes against: the force of gravity.
