Sport Climbing Set to be in Olympics

Sport climbing is expected to be confirmed as a new Olympic sport for the Tokyo 2020 Games next month.

An International Olympic Committee (IOC) session is set to announce on 3 August that the sport will be added to the programme for four years' time.

It is one of five sports put forward by Tokyo organisers, a proposal backed unanimously by the IOC executive board.

This would be fantastic for our sport.
