IFSC President Meets BMC President at the CWIF 2019

On the occasion of the CWIF (Climbing Works International Festival) 2019, one of the UK’s top Bouldering competitions which sees international Athletes go head to head with members of the British public, IFSC President Marco Maria Scolaris visited Sheffield, UK.

Welcomed by owners of The Climbing Works and IFSC Officials Graeme Alderson and Percy Bishton, alongside IFSC Honorary Member and Climbers Against Cancer (CAC) Ambassador Reindert Lenselink, President Scolaris attended the renowned pre-IFSC season event. Featuring World Cup style Boulder problems, the CWIF 2019 made history by nominating the first female Chief Routesetter at an international Sport Climbing event, IFSC Routsetter Katja Vidmar.

“I have finally been able to enjoy this famous event and meet British Athletes as well as many other friends,” stated President Scolaris. “I also had the opportunity to spend the final day of the CWIF with Lynn Robinson, British Mountaineering Council (BMC) President. We shared feelings and views for the future of our sport and challenges that IFSC Member Federations will face with the new Olympic perspective Sport Climbing has achieved.”
