The IFSC is pleased to announce a new Sport Climbing event for this exciting 2017 season!
Thanks to the joint effort of the IFSC and the Chinese Mountaineering Association (CMA), the IFSC China Open is now confirmed for November 17th-19th, 2017.
The event will take place in Guangzhou, one of the most influential international metropolises in China. In 2016, Guangzhou hosted the IFSC Youth World Championships, an annual event gathering top young athletes from around the world in all three Sport Climbing disciplines.
The IFSC China Open will showcase Boulder, Lead and Speed as well. A combined ranking under the Olympic format will be calculated. For each discipline, the following athletes will be automatically selected to the Event:
• 10 best athletes of the World Ranking
• 2 best Chinese athletes (selected by the CMA)
• 8 athletes selected for the finals rounds from the Open event held the previous day
