IFSC Climbing World Championships

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.

The first event was organized in Frankfurt in 1991.

History[edit]

From 1991, the UIAA (Union Internationale des Associations d'Alpinisme) organizes the first 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.[1]

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

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