IFSC LEAD AND SPEED WORLD CUP IN VILLARS, SWITZERLAND CONFIRMED
The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) is pleased to confirm that the IFSC Lead and Speed World Cup in Villars, Switzerland, is confirmed and will take place as scheduled from 1 to 3 July.
The small Swiss village in the canton of Vaud will welcome back some of the best Sport Climbing athletes in the world for the fifth time in the last six years. Prior to last year’s cancellation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, in fact, Villars hosted four successful World Cup competitions from 2016 to 2019.
To protect the safety of all parties involved in the event – athletes, officials, judges, routesetters, and volunteers – the Addendum to IFSC Rules, first published in 2020 and updated on 25 March 2021, will be implemented.
The info sheet of the competition is now available on the IFSC website. Registrations will open on Monday, 10 May.
