2021 IFSC CLIMBING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS TO TAKE PLACE IN MOSCOW AS SCHEDULED
The Executive Board of the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) met via teleconference on 18 February 2021 to address a series of important topics and ratify a number of decisions.
It is confirmed that the IFSC Climbing World Championships Moscow 2021 will take place in the Russian capital, as scheduled, from 15 to 22 September.
The announcement follows the decision taken by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in the case between the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the Russian Anti-Doping Agency, and is the result of a series of fruitful meetings IFSC President Marco Scolaris has had with both the International Olympic Committee and WADA.
The IFSC will continue working closely with the Climbing Federation of Russia to fully respect the CAS decision and, at the same time, deliver an event that lives up to the standards required of the IFSC flagship competition.
In addition, it has been confirmed that the IFSC World Cup competitions and IFSC Youth World Championships are unaffected by the CAS decision.
