Team Canada will not send athletes to Games in summer 2020 due to COVID-19 risks

Mar 22, 2020

On behalf of Climbing Escalade Canada and its Olympic athletes, Alannah Yip and Sean McColl, I would like to applaud the Canadian Olympic Committee/Canadian Paralympic Committee for their decision to not send Canadian teams to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in the summer of 2020. It takes real leadership and courage to take a firm stand. We strongly believe this is the right call.

I am calling on the entire Canadian Climbing Community to join with COC/CPC in doing our part to “flatten the curve” of Covid-19. This means adhering to public health and safety guidelines above all else. Athletic competition, training and preparation will become a priority again in the future, but it is not one at this point in time.

For now, we must prioritize the health, safety and well being of our friends and neighbours, fellow Canadians and people of the World. Stay safe.

COC/POC Press Release.  Postpone Today; Conquer Tomorrow.
