IFSC WORLD CUPS IN SALT LAKE CITY AND SEOUL CANCELLED
The International Federation of Sport Climbing, in accordance with USA Climbing and the Korean Alpine Federation, decided to definitely cancel the IFSC World Cup in Salt Lake City (USA) the IFSC World Cup in Seoul (KOR).
The two competitions were initially scheduled to be part of the 2020 Boulder season, with the IFSC World Cup in Seoul set to take place from May 8 to 10, and the IFSC World Cup in Salt Lake City scheduled from June 12 to 14. Both competitions were also expected to host a Speed event.
The IFSC would like to thank the two organisations for their cooperation and the countless efforts they made in the last few months. Unfortunately, the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, along with traveling restrictions that derive from it and of the safety measures that are currently in place in many countries all over the world, forced the IFSC, the Korean Alpine Federation and USA Climbing to take another painful decision.
