Starting on September 8th, Austrian national public service broadcaster Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF) will televise for Austrian viewers climbing and paraclimbing action in Innsbruck, the longest IFSC World Championships ever.
ORF brings an experienced team and advanced technical plan to the signature IFSC event of the 2018 season. Norbert Belina will comment during the production alongside Anna Stöhr for the women's rounds and Kilian Fischhuber for the men's rounds, with Johannes Hahn moderating.
"Climbing is at home in Austria, and the commitment of the Austrian National Television, ORF, is proof of this. Having ORF as the host broadcaster means that TV production for this event will be top notch. ORF has a wealth of experience and know-how when it comes to sports productions. While cooperating on the broadcasting, it is obvious how motivated and well-prepared they are to raise the bar. We are very much looking forward to presenting some great innovations," says Michael Schöpf, CEO of IFSC World Championships Innsbruck 2018.
Viewers outside Austria can tune-in to the IFSC homepage to follow the live streaming, and links to replays will be shared on the official Innsbruck event pages for Climbing and Paraclimbing where the competition schedule is listed.
