Watch the Finals below and Canadian results and photos here.
The IFSC Youth World Championships take place every year and gather hundreds of the most elite sport climbing athletes between the ages of 14 and 19.
This year, there are 1,172 athlete registrations across all categories – representing 50 countries and 5 continents – and climbing will take place for 12 days on the brand-new walls of Kletterzentrum Innsbruck.
This year, the Combined results will be the focus. In addition to medals in Bouldering, Lead and Speed, 20 female and 20 male Youth A athletes, and 6 female and 6 male Youth B and Juniors athletes, will compete in the Combined on the last weekend.
Sunday will also serve as the major qualification event for Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018, with 13 female and 13 male Youth A athletes to be recommended for selection.
You could say it was kind of a bummer that I didn't make it to finals at nationals couple days ago, but it was still enjoyable. I still have to keep my motivation and good attitude for Austria 🇦🇹 in September. So psyched to keep training with the boi's. @sean.climbs @sami.singleton @palmerlarsen @juliannalyle @kyle_omeara @oscarzworld #saminationalchamp #marly #rip #ndip #nextyear #gumbyoftheday #getsupalight #theplug #myfishnet #freetomove
