Nearly 700 youth athletes from five continents and 43 countries take the spotlight at the IFSC Youth World Championships on Aug. 9 to 16 in Moscow, Russia.

The young Sport Climbing stars will compete over eight days to be crowned Bouldering, Lead, Speed and Combined youth world champions of 2018.

A number of Canadians advanced to Semis and Finals and we’ll have interviews and a follow-up report within the next few days.

Indiana Chapman, for the second year in a row, got Canada its best finish with fourth in Youth B Boulder. The only Canadians to advance to Finals were Chapman in Youth B Boulder and Lead, Zach Richardson in Youth B Boulder and Victor Baudrand in Youth B Lead.
