Vladivostok hosts the Primor'e championship in sport climbing

On Saturday, November 22, more than eighty strongest athletes from the Primorsky capital, Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur and Nakhodka completed the first day of the Vladivostok Open Cup and the Primorye sport climbing championship. The two-day competition, which takes place at the climbing wall of the Vladivostok Marine Technical School (Kaplunova, 7), traditionally started with the discipline "difficulty".

On the first day, qualifications and finals in climbing for difficulty were held in groups of teenagers, boys and adults. Both routes were covered by both professionals and beginners. Difficulty climbing consists in the passage of a distance by athletes along a difficult route for a while. But in addition to the limited time, all "climbers of the summits" are counted also the height of the ascent along the route.

According to the chief judge of the competition Tatyana Scheglevatykh, out of the total number of participants in this program, only 70 percent of athletes reach the final: “Unfortunately, in our sport there are very few girls, there are more men. Many girls cannot withstand the load or do not exhibit at competitions. This year a surprisingly very strong male group has gathered. It is very joyful that such athletes take part in our tournaments, and there are more and more people willing to practice every year. "

On November 23, the Far Eastern climbers show their skills and abilities in another discipline - "speed". Its main feature is the fastest possible overcoming of an open track. This program is more popular with children than adult climbers.

Climbing season climbers will be regional competitions in Khabarovsk, which are scheduled for December this year.
