IFSC Climbing World Championships

Last updated

The IFSC Climbing World Championships are the biennial world championships for competition climbing organized by the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC). This event determines the male and female world champions in the three disciplines of sport climbing: lead climbing, bouldering, and speed climbing. Since 2012, a Combined ranking is also determined, for climbers competing in all disciplines, and additional medals are awarded based on that ranking. [1] [2] [3] [4]

The first event was organized in Frankfurt in 1991.

History

In 1991, the Union Internationale des Associations d'Alpinisme (UIAA) organized the first climbing championships with only two disciplines: lead and speed. The International Council for Competition Climbing (ICC) was created in 1997 as an internal body of the UIAA to take charge of competitions. [5]

A new discipline was introduced in the 2001 world championship: bouldering. In 2007, the independent IFSC was created as a continuation of the ICC to govern Competition Climbing.

In 2012 the World Championships were shifted to even years with a double interest: avoiding interference with the 2013 World Games climbing event and giving a supplementary opportunity to demonstrate the sport for a possible integration into the 2020 Olympic Games.

In 2012, 2014 and 2016, a Combined ranking (sometimes also called Overall ranking) was computed for climbers participating in all of the three events. [1] [2] [3] In 2018, an additional Combined event was included, in which the six climbers with highest overall ranking [6] [7] were asked to compete again in all disciplines. Their combined score [4] was eventually computed based on results obtained in this additional event, rather than on their results in previous specific events. The Combined event was meant to test the new Olympic Games format, first applied in 2020, in which each climber will be forced to compete in all disciplines, and medals will be only awarded based on their combined score. Results obtained in each discipline will not be separately considered for awards.
