Top Lead and Speed Athletes Return to Scotland

7 years after the IFSC Youth World Championships in Edinburgh, top sport climbing athletes return to the capital city of Scotland for IFSC World Cup Edinburgh, the fifth Lead and Speed event of 2017. The event will take place on September 23-24 alongside the second Paraclimbing Cup of the season.

Edinburgh has consistently hosted top-notch events for rising youth stars since 2009. Young athletes from all over the world competed in Edinburgh in 2010 at the annual IFSC Youth World Championships. Now, many of those same athletes return to Scotland for IFSC World Cup Edinburgh. Altogether, 131 Lead and Speed athletes and 63 paraclimbing athletes have registered to compete at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena this weekend.

The competition preview, schedule, starters and trailers can be found on the Edinburgh event page, and starters and results for the Paraclimbing Cup can be found here. Tune-in to the IFSC homepage on September 24 to watch the action.
