IFSC Youth World Championships - Arco (ITA) 2019

22 - 31 August 2019

It’s now time for the youth athletes to take their turn in the spotlight at the annual IFSC Climbing Youth World Championships from August 22 to 31. The future stars of Sport Climbing have all gathered at the Iconic Rockmaster Climbing Stadium in Arco, Italy to compete in Bouldering, Lead and Speed for a chance to be crowned the youth world champions of 2019.

During these 10 days of non-stop climbing, the athletes are separated by age into three categories, Juniors (18-19), Youth A (16-17) and Youth B (14-15). With many of the youth world champions from last year’s Youth World Championships in Moscow competing on the main World Cup circuit and in the recently concluded IFSC Climbing World Championships Hachioji 2019, this will be an exciting event to see which new climbers will rise to the top.

Last year, Team Japan came out ahead in the medal count with 14 medals, 6 of them gold. Russia was second with 7 medals, while the USA was close behind with 6, both had 2 gold medal athletes. Which country and which athletes will take the lead this year?

The semi-finals and finals of the event in Arco will be live-streamed on the IFSC homepage and scores can be followed in real-time from your phone by downloading the “YWCH 2019” results app. Full results, starters, schedule of events and highlights from last year’s event in Moscow can be found on the official IFSC event page.
