At the crowded dance of the rookies of these Tokyo Olympics, sport climbing also debuts today at 10 with its three tests: speed, which will add up the times of two heats, boulder, and lead (difficulty) in which the highest hold is worth. high achieved. Men and women compete in two separate competitions, whoever has the lowest score wins the gold medal.
In speed, the winner is the one who climbs a wall of 15 meters faster with the holds always arranged in the same way. The lead, on the other hand, focuses on the difficulty of the route arranged on a 15-meter wall, with the holds arranged to form a very difficult route. Bouldering, on the other hand, is performed on blocks of 4 and a half meters, untied and with the sole protection of a mattress.
Italian women’s sport climbing has good medal hopes for Laura Rogora, 2020 champion of the Lead Climbing World Cup in Briançon. Born in Rome, the 20-year-old studies mathematics in Trento and trains in Arco. He inherited the passion for climbing from his father Enrico, professor of Mathematics at the Sapienza University. Mathematics and climbing can go hand in hand: “On the wall as well as in an expression, there is not only one possible way out: to find the solution you have to come up with something about yourself”. In the men’s team compete Ludovico Fossali and Michael Piccolruaz from South Tyrol, who in 2017 won a bronze at the European Championships in the combined.
