Sport Climbing – The New Olympic Sport You Didn’t Know You Were Looking Forward To
I saw a video on Facebook recently featuring Sport Climbing. It was incredible!
Sport climbing has a couple variations, but in the video I watched, two climbers competed to be the first to reach the top of a rock wall. The whole race lasted mere seconds -- 5, 6 or 7 -- and often the winners won by just milliseconds. I nearly thought I was watching a video in fast-forward mode.
Upon doing some further research, I discovered that Sport Climbing is one of several new sports to be added to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
While I'm looking forward to watching it, I'm kind of interested in trying! If you're interested in joining, we've got some local spots to try out:
Ninjas United - American Ninja Warrior on Roosevelt Rd.
