SALT LAKE CITY TO HOST TWO IFSC WORLD CUPS IN 2021
The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC), in accordance with USA Climbing, is pleased to announce that Salt Lake City will welcome two IFSC World Cup competitions in May 2021.
The capital and most populous city of Utah will host a Boulder World Cup on May 21 and 22 — replacing the one previously scheduled for Munich (GER) — while the Boulder and Speed World Cup originally slated to be held from June 11 to 13 has been rescheduled to May 28 to 30.
USA Climbing will also organise an IFSC Paraclimbing World Cup in October 2021.
IFSC Sport Director Silvia Verdolini said:
“It is a great opportunity for the IFSC to host two world cups on two consecutive weekends. We already started working closely with USA Climbing to organise courses for judges and route setters in the days between the two competitions, and to get started with the implementation of sport development as defined in the recently approved IFSC strategic plan.”
USA Climbing VP of Sport John Muse said:
““We are honoured to host back to back IFSC world cups in 2021. With reduced travel, this serves our international community of climbers well and we are excited to host the world in our beautiful home of Salt Lake City.”
