Get to know the climbers who will be competing at the Olympic 2020

40 climbers (20 men and 20 women) will compete at the Tokyo Olympics, and each country attending the games has been given a maximum quota of two competitors per gender. The climbers who have already qualified for the Olympics were selected through a series of Olympic qualification events, including the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) World Championships in Hachioji, Japan, and a combined contest in Toulouse, France.


For India and its representation, it's still a long way to go but for the rest of the world, the dream has come true about sport climbing being recognised as a sport in the Olympics and our favourite climbers will be competing to take medals home. Yes, this is going to be thrilling.
