IFSC President Marco Scolaris said:
“THIS YEAR HAS NOT BEEN WITHOUT ITS CHALLENGES, BUT AS CLIMBERS WE ARE USED TO LOOKING UPWARDS AND OVERCOMING CRUXES. OUR OPTIMISM THAT WE WILL SOON CLIMB THE WORLD AGAIN HAS BEEN ONGOING AND NOW, WE LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING A LIVE SPORT CLIMBING COMPETITION ONCE MORE, THANKS TO OUR FRIENDS IN ISRAEL.”
