Among the topics discussed during the meeting, President Scolaris highlighted the importance of sharing among International Federations. Originally founded in 1923 (FIBT) and accepted as an Olympic sport the following year, the IBSF has almost a century of sport experience and Olympic history. The meeting took place with just over two months until the first appearance of Sport Climbing in an Olympic context at the Youth Olympic Games and two years before the first Olympic Games for Sport Climbing.
"We are very pleased to have met with Mr. Ferriani, especially in light of our new Olympic challenges. We are confident that exchanges with such experienced Federations can guide us on our path, towards a fulfilling future for Sport Climbing," says President Scolaris.
