IFSC PRESENTS P24 CATALOGUE: HOLDS, MACROS, AND VOLUMES FOR THE OLYMPIC GAMES PARIS 2024
Ten months away from the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) presented P24 Catalogue: Holds, Macros, and Volumes for the Olympic Games Paris 2024 – the second edition of the sport equipment catalogue specifically designed for the Games.
Same as for the previous edition of the catalogue, the aim of P24 is to provide the highest quality of sport equipment; promote fairness, by publicly releasing it in advance prior to the Olympics; and create opportunities for sport development after the event.
The document is available in the form of an online catalogue, offering user-friendly features and enhanced visibility of each item. IFSC Member Federations and national teams are encouraged to browse the catalogue and get in touch directly with the brands for training purposes.
The manufacturers selected for each category of product are:
- P24 Holds: Cheeta, eXpression Holds, Flathold, Squadra;
- P24 Macros: 360 Holds, Cheeta, Flathold, Rockcity; and
- P24 Volumes: Blocz, Cheeta, Squadra.
Only companies that were included in the pre-existing IFSC Official Sport Equipment Catalogue for the 2023 season were taken into consideration for P24.
In addition to P24, the IFSC will also release a joint initiative named S24 Catalogue: Holds, Macros, and Volumes for Sport Climbing Events at the Olympic Qualifier Series 2024 – available at the end of 2023.
The qualification process to Paris 2024 has started in August, with the first batch of Olympic quotas being awarded at the IFSC World Championships Bern 2023, and continued with the first of five Continental Qualifiers, which took place in Rome, Italy.
The following ones are scheduled in Laval, France; Jakarta, Indonesia; Melbourne, Australia; and Pretoria, South Africa.
News and updates about all IFSC events will be available on the IFSC website and on the Federation’s digital channels: Facebook, Instagram, X, LinkedIn, and exclusively for the Chinese audience, Douyin and Weibo.
