The Speed starting order 10 am Euro Time

EDITORIAL

Monday, 2 August

Sport Climbing will make its debut in the Olympics on Tuesday 3/8 at 5 pm (10 am Euro Time), with the Speed discipline. The starting order is on lane A reversed to the seeding (how and when they qualified to the Olympics) and on lane B with a stagger of 50 %. This means that first out will be Christopfer Cosser RSA and Jongwon Chon KOR. Last out, in both races, will be Tomoa Narasaki and Adam Ondra. For especially Narasaki, this is a big advantage as then he will know how much he needs to push in order to advance to one of the top positions.

It is the same for Ondra but advancing in the lower part of the ranking has not so much impact due to the multiplication format. Bassa Mawem starts in the second last heat, meaning he has the best starting position of the Speed specialists. In regards to the females, Janja Garnbret and Julia Chanourdie are last out and among the Speed specialists, Iuliia Kaplina has the best starting order.
