"Olympics? I do not know if to participate or to boycott "

Ondra expresses doubts about his presence if there will be also Speed

08 August 2016

New hard declaration by Adam Ondra about the possibility to have Speed competition in the next Olympics at Tokyo 2020. The Czech champion says that if this hypothesis will be confirmed, his presence could be in doubt.

"Climbing was born on the rock and there is always a top to reach. Despite having a World Cup, Speed is a kind of artificial discipline with standardized moves and this is against the soul of climbing."

In March, 2017 IFSC will present the details for Tokyo 2020 and at the moment the unique medal for three trials Lead, Boulder and Speed is the most likely.
