It is with great grief that we announce the passing today of IFSC Honorary Member Sang-tae Cho (KOR). Sang-tae, born in 1926, was a fundamental actor in sport climbing who served as the former president of the Asian Council and the first Asian International Judge.
“Sang-tae has been a leader in the development of our sport since before the turn of the century,” says Marco Scolaris, President of the IFSC. “He was a great guy and a friend for all those who met him. He will be missed, and our thoughts are with the Sang-tae family.”
