IOC Approves New Qualification System for Sport Climbing at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
Due to the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the IFSC announced last month that no IFSC events will take place in China in April 2020. As the IFSC Continental Championships (in particular the Asian Championships which were scheduled to take place in Chongqing, China) face disruption, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has approved an amended version of the Qualification System for the Tokyo Games, which can be viewed here.
The IFSC is closely monitoring the development of the Coronavirus and will release an update over the coming weeks. Should it be deemed unsafe to hold the Championships at this time, the remaining quota places for Sport Climbing at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 shall be reallocated.
