What is the Combined Format?

The new Olympic Combined format brings together all three Sport Climbing disciplines in one big event. Athletes need to have enough strength, endurance and power to come out on top at the end of two full days of competition.

Following each round of competition, the athletes will be ranked based on their results. These results will then be multiplied against each other for an overall combined score. The climber with the lowest score wins the gold medal.


Qualification Events

History was made at the IFSC World Championships in Hachioji as Sport Climbing’s top athletes went head-to-head in the first Olympic Qualifying Event from 18 to 21 August 2019. At the conclusion of the competition, eight of the highest placed athletes per gender, with a maximum of two per country, had earned a quota place for Tokyo 2020.

The second Olympic Qualifying Event took place from 28 November to 1 December 2019 in Toulouse/Tournefeuille, France. The top 20 athletes per gender in the Combined Rankings, following the IFSC World Cup Series 2019, battled it out for the chance to earn one of the next six quota spots for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

From 25 February to 1 March 2020, the IFSC Pan-American Championships saw two more athletes qualify for the Games. Later in 2020, the remaining quota places will be determined during the African, Asian, European and Oceania Championships.
