Wednesday marked 50 days to go until the biannual gathering of the best Bouldering, Lead, Speed and Paraclimbing athletes worldwide. Representatives of the media are invited to request accreditation to attend the event by completing the online form at the Innsbruck 2018 website: Innsbruck2018.com/en/Media/Accreditation.
Media accreditation badges may be received at the registration centre in the famous Olympiaworld arena, where all final rounds will take place. The badges permit access to the press centre and all relevant events during the entire IFSC World Championships, which will be the longest ever. Climbing rounds will also take place at the popular Kletterzentrum Innsbruck, specially constructed for training and competing at the highest level. Last year, the brand-new site served as the major qualification event for Sport Climbing’s first Youth Olympic Games in October. Many qualified athletes on the climb to Buenos Aires will return to action, and they will be joined by hundreds of star athletes. 2016 Lead world champion Adam Ondra of the Czech Republic is already on the start list, as well as reigning Paraclimbing world champions across the visually impaired, amputee and RP categories.
