TOKYO 2020

Olympic sport climbing

By Ninian Carter

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - The 2020 summer Olympic Games, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, take place in Tokyo, Japan.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games feature 339 events in 33 different sports, encompassing 50 disciplines.

Sport Climbing is making its Olympic debut, with athletes scaling devious wall courses, often times holding on by just their finger tips. Climbers will participate in three disciplines – Speed, Bouldering and Lead.

It is the second time that Japan, and specifically Tokyo, has hosted the Summer Olympic Games – the first being in 1964.
