IFSC Official Sport Equipment Catalogue Release: Holds, Macros and Volumes
The IFSC Official Sport Equipment Catalogue is an initiative which aims to make the playing field fairer across international IFSC events. Each IFSC event will use only authorised Official Sport Equipment within the Field of Play to ensure that all stakeholders share the same experience, from Athletes and National Federations to Routesetters and Event Organisers. In compliance with the Olympic Charter Rule 50, the Official Sport Equipment Catalogue also aims to set out a high standard of quality and clean venue as an Olympic Sport.
The highest priority has been placed on the Holds, Macros and Volumes category of the Official Sport Equipment Catalogue due to their importance on Sport Climbing’s fairness and quality. A wide range of Holds, Macros and Volumes is necessary for fair and versatile Routesetting in in the FOP, with a minimum of 3-4 providers ideally featuring in each IFSC event.
