Climbing is making its Games debut at the Tokyo Olympiad. Among the French chances of medals, the 27-year-old Stéphanoise Anouck Jaubert. We will first have to pass the qualifications this Wednesday.

Climbing is one of the six disciplines entering the Olympic program in 2021 (along with karate, surfing, skateboarding and baseball-softball). In the tricolor delegation, represented by two men and two women, we find Anouck Jaubert. The Stéphanoise, double gold medalist in the World Cup in the speed test, sets off this Wednesday morning from 10 am (French time) for the first round of the combined.

For its first Games, climbing combines the three classic disciplines: speed, bouldering and difficulty. To reach the final, scheduled for Friday, it will be necessary to finish among the best eight of the twenty candidates over all three events. “There is a lot of waiting” recognizes Clair Jaubert, Anouck’s father. “Anouck is not one of the favorites but we will take all the good things that will happen. The main thing is that she has fun”.

In collaboration with the Loire Haute-Loire Territorial Mountain and Climbing Committee, the Marmiton du Pilat restaurant in Planfoy offers you to follow the climbing events with the installation of a large screen facing its terrace in the center. -town.
