Two IFSC World Cups cancelled in China due to pandemic

by


The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) has announced the cancellation of two World Cups that were scheduled this autumn in Wujiang (Lead & Speed) and Chongqing (Lead & Boulder) due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.

The spectre of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to loom over climbing competitions. A few moments ago the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) announced the cancellation of two World Cups scheduled this autumn in Wujiang and Chongqing due to ongoing concerns over the pandemic in the country.


The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) stated "The Chinese Mountaineering Association (CMA) recently informed the IFSC of its decision to withdraw from hosting the IFSC Lead and Speed World Cup, from 30 September to 2 October in Wujiang, and the IFSC Boulder & Lead World Cup from 6 to 9 October in Chongqing. The IFSC, CMA, and local organisers would like to thank the Sport Climbing community for its understanding in this matter, and apologise for any inconvenience the cancellations may cause."

The IFSC is looking into the possible rescheduling of the events. In the meantime the world’s climbing elite has gathered in Salt Lake City, USA, for back-to-back World Cups: from today to 22 May the Boulder and Speed World Cup, from 24-25 May the Paraclimbing World Cup, and from 27 - 29 May the Boulder and Speed World Cup once again.

After the US leg the Boulder World Cup returns to Europe with the fifth stage of the Boulder World Cup at Brixen, Italy from 20 - 22 June. The last time Italy hosted a Boulder World Cup was in Milan 2011.
