Sport Climbing Proposed for Olympic Games Paris 2024

di

The Paris Organising Committee has proposed to add Sport Climbing to the Olympic Games Paris 2024. If approved, sport climbing will feature in the Summer Olympic Games for the second consecutive edition after Tokyo 2020. Furthermore, under new proposals Speed climbing is separated from Boulder + Lead.

During a press conference yesterday in Paris, France, the Paris Organising Committee of the Olympic & Paralympic Games (Paris 2024) confirmed a proposal to include four additional sports in the Sports Programme of the 33rd Summer Olympic Games: Breakdance, Skateboarding, Surfing and Sport Climbing.

The proposal will now be presented to the IOC Executive Board on March 26th-28th. If accepted, it will then be put forward to the 134th IOC Session on 24th June in Lausanne, Switzerland. If approved, Sport Climbing will feature in the Summer Olympic Games for the second consecutive edition, after making its Olympic debut in Tokyo 2020.

Furthermore, during yesterday’s press conference the International Federation of Sport Climbing announced a series of important changes which, if ratified, will significantly change the current Olympic format. While the Tokyo 2020 format comprises a mix of Lead, Boulder and Speed, under the new proposal in Paris 2024 Speed would be separated from the combination Boulder and Lead, doubling the medals from 6 to 12 and allowing 72 athletes to take part instead of 40. According to the new formula 16 women and 16 men would compete for six medals in the Speed discipline, and 20 women and 20 men would compete for six medals based on the combination of results in the Bouldering and Lead disciplines.
