TWO IFSC WORLD CUPS IN CHINA CALLED OFF DUE TO PANDEMIC
The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) regrets to announce the cancellation of two World Cups that were scheduled for later this fall in Wujiang and Chongqing, China, due to ongoing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
The Chinese Mountaineering Association (CMA) recently informed the IFSC of its decision to withdraw from hosting the IFSC Lead and Speed World Cup, from 30 September to 2 October in Wujiang, and the IFSC Boulder & Lead World Cup from 6 to 9 October in Chongqing.
The IFSC, CMA, and local organisers would like to thank the Sport Climbing community for its understanding in this matter and apologise for any inconvenience the cancellations may cause.
The IFSC is looking into the possible rescheduling of the events and will provide further details as soon as they become available.
