IFSC TO LIVE-STREAM SPEED QUALIFICATION ROUNDS IN SEOUL, JAKARTA, AND SALT LAKE CITY
Pushed by the incredible rise of the Speed discipline in the past couple of years, with records being broken at national, continental, and world level with unbelievable ease, the IFSC has decided to live stream the Speed qualification rounds of the first three competitions of the season – taking place in Seoul, South Korea; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
Starting tomorrow, 28 April, at 12:15 (UTC+9:00) the men’s Speed qualification will be available on the IFSC YouTube channel, followed closely by the women’s one. No geo-block will be applied to the streams.
With the majority of the records broken in the past two seasons going down in qualifications, expectations are at the highest possible level, with names like Kiromal Katibin, Sam Watson, Deng Lijuan, and Aleksandra Miroslaw being highlighted on everyone’s start list.
Seoul 2023 will then continue with the Speed finals, scheduled tomorrow at 20:00. The men’s and women’s Boulder events are taking place on 29 and 30 April.
News and updates about the events will be available on the IFSC website, and on the Federation’s digital channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and specifically for the Chinese audience, Douyin and Weibo.
