Welcome to ‘Climb2020’. On the 28th September 2015, as part of the additional games program, the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee shortlisted sport climbing along with four other sports for possible inclusion in the 2020 Olympic Games. In August 2016, the 130 members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will vote to decide which of the five sports will be included.
This is a great opportunity for sport climbing and in association with the British Mountaineering Council (BMC), the Climb2020 campaign aims to raise greater awareness of the sport and unite climbing communities across the UK in support of this Olympic proposal. Over the coming months, the climb2020 web site will serve as both a hub where all the latest information will be published and a place where you can share your thoughts on the subject and register your support.
So, take a minute, register and see how you can get involved in support of this great opportunity!
“Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be an Olympian. It would literally be fulfilling a dream.”
Climb2020's Olympic Bid

…and help sport climbing reach its Olympic dream!
Register your support now! Getting the attention of the 130 members of the International Olympic Committee is no small task. However, the Climb2020 campaign is reaching right across the globe and with your support it will be found by those who look for it. By registering, you will be joining the Climb2020 community, which through a united and single voice will demonstrate to the IOC that climbing is perfectly positioned to become an Olympic sport.
On the 30 April 2016 the Climb2020 Campaign registered its 1500th signature of support!
Congratulations and any thanks to Elias Bignold from the UK who became the 1500th registered confirmed signature. With four months left before the IOC’s decision on 1 August we are striving for an ambitious 3000 signatures so please nudge a friend and continue to spread the word.
