The IFSC Africa Continental Championships, an Olympic Qualifier event, starts today in Cape Town, South Africa. 22 athletes from South Africa and Uganda are registered to compete for two Olympic places, one per sex. The winner of each category will earn a ticket to Tokyo 2020.
The International Federation of Sport Climbing commented:
"Years from now, people will look back on the 2020 IFSC African Championships in Cape Town as a fundamental milestone in the development and growth of Sport Climbing in Africa. The Sport Climbing family once again displayed its fierce commitment to the sport by uniting to overcome adversity. The IFSC would like to thank the City of Cape Town and the entire local organising committee for never losing confidence, for always believing and for finally delivering this historic Olympic qualification event."
