Sport climbing is a form of rock climbing that may rely on permanent anchors fixed to the rock for protection, in which a rope that is attached to the climber is clipped into the anchors to arrest a fall, or that involves climbing short distances with a crash pad underneath as protection.
Using a range of hand and footholds of different shapes and sizes, climbers put their skills and strength into practice on a vertical wall.
The sport made its Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 and featured three disciplines: Speed, Bouldering, and Lead.
At the Games, each climber competes in three disciplines, and the final rankings are determined by multiplying the placement in each discipline, with the athletes achieving the lowest scores winning medals.
