SALT LAKE CITY TO HOST ADDITIONAL SPEED WORLD CUP EVENTS ON 20 MAY
The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) and USA Climbing have agreed to add Speed events to the schedule of the IFSC World Cup taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, from 20 to 22 May.
Along with the IFSC Boulder World Cup in Brixen, Italy, the additional Speed events added in Salt Lake City now fully compensate for the cancellation of the IFSC World Cup in Moscow, Russia.
The programme for the first weekend of World Cup competition in Salt Lake City will now replicate the one for the second World Cup – taking place from 27 to 29 May – with both men’s and women’s Speed events being contested on Friday, and the two Boulder events spread across the weekend.
Friday, 20 May:
12:15 PM (UTC-6:00) Speed qualifications
8:00 PM Speed finals
Saturday, 21 May:
9:00 AM Women’s Boulder qualification
3:30 PM Men’s Boulder qualification
Sunday, 22 May:
11:00 AM Boulder semi-finals
6:00 PM Boulder finals
The updated information sheet for the IFSC World Cup has already been published.
