Sometimes it all comes down to the strength in the fingertips
This sport demands athletes to literally cling on with their fingertips to reach success and, perhaps, a gold medal. Providing excitement, great entertainment, and breath-taking manoeuvres, it was high time to have the sport incorporated at this international sport event that is held every four years. At the Games, the sport will feature in three disciplines: bouldering, speed, and lead. In speed climbing the audience gets the thrill of direct competition, as two climbers are pitted against each other to see who is the fastest. In bouldering, the athletes are not directly competing but have to complete a course in a specific time, while lead means the athletes climb as high as possible on a 15m wall within a time limit. All climbing athletes have to compete in all three disciplines, meaning they have to bring immense skill and variability to the table. What makes sport climbing so challenging but entertaining to watch is the fact that climbers are not allowed to use any additional equipment apart from their bare hands and climbing shoes. In some competitions they are secured with safety ropes, but usually they dangle from the wall unsupported. Clinging to a wall to reach the top may be challenging enough for most, but this sport also requires plenty of mental focus, concentration, and strategy, as one slip can mean the end of the competition.

Tilting from vertical to the seemingly impossible
As a viewer, you may think it is simply impossible to conquer the course the climbers face, as the vertical can quickly tilt into an angle where the athletes literally hang from the wall. Will they fall or be able to cling on? This question is one reason why this sport is always nerve-racking but exciting to watch.
