IFSC OFFICIAL STATEMENT
The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) can confirm that the IFSC World Cup Edinburgh will go ahead as scheduled. This follows consultation with The British Mountaineering Council and GB Climbing after they received Government guidance regarding sports events in the UK, following the sad news of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.
During the event The British Mountaineering Council and GB Climbing will observe a media blackout. As an International Sports Federation we have a duty to continue to provide the global climbing community with information and results from our events, however, during this competition, on official IFSC channels, the media output will be reduced out of respect at this time and in support of the home nation event organisers.
Our thoughts and condolences are with The Royal Family and everyone around the world mourning the loss of Her Majesty The Queen.
