Jan Hojer

Cologne-born all-rounder Jan Hojer started competing from the age of 10 and was considered a strong contender for the Olympics as soon as the triple discipline format was announced. His background in youth Lead and Speed competitions combined with high strength and power in Bouldering - and a happy-go-lucky nature - make him one to watch in Tokyo, along with his consistency in peaking at the right time. Hojer seems to thrive in high-pressure, one-off championship events, having won just 12 medals in 53 Boulder World Cup circuit, but an impressive 7 medals across fewer-and-further-between World and European Championships and World Games.

Hojer won the IFSC Boulder World Cup overall title in 2014 and has three European Championship titles to his name: two in Boulder and one in Combined. At World Championship level, he has won three medals (2 bronze, 1 silver) in Boulder and Combined, including a bronze in the 2018 Innsbruck World Championships in Combined – the first event in which the Combined format was contested at senior level.
