Olympic Games Debut

The countdown is on, only a couple of weeks to go before Climbing debuts at the Olympics. While we have no New Zealand athlete competing this time around, we will all be watching the event with intense interest and follow the fortunes of our Oceania representatives, Tom O’Halloran and Oceania MacKenzie.

Climbing runs from Tuesday the 3rd of August to Friday the 6th of August.

All the information, starting lists and schedule and times are available off the IFSC website here:
