Tokyo 2020 Cancelled

It is official. Tokyo 2020 will be in 2021.

The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) released this statement. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

The IFSC President Marco Scolaris commented:

“DAY AFTER DAY, IT BECAME CLEAR THAT THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE GAMES WAS THE ONLY WAY TO GUARANTEE A FAIR AND COLLECTIVE PARTICIPATION TO TOKYO 2020. THE IFSC WELCOMES AND SUPPORTS THE DECISION TAKEN BY THE IOC, THE TOKYO 2020 ORGANISING COMMITTEE, THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT AND ALL THE AUTHORITIES INVOLVED. THE OUTBREAK OF THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS FORCED ALL OF US TO TAKE UNPRECEDENTED MEASURES TO CONTAIN THE PANDEMIC, ULTIMATELY THIS ONE. RIGHT NOW, ALL OUR EFFORTS HAVE TO BE FOCUSED ON THE END OF THIS PANDEMIC. THERE WILL BE TIME FOR COMPETING, THERE WILL BE TIME FOR SPORTS. NOW THE WORLD IS ILL, BUT ONE DAY WE WILL CELEBRATE ITS RECOVERY WITH OUR WORLD CUPS AND CHAMPIONSHIPS. WE WILL CLIMB THE WORLD AGAIN!”
