Speed climbing is one of five sports that have been included in the programme for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics along with baseball/softball, bowling, karate, surfing and skateboarding. Italy's Ludivico Fossali won the men's event after Russian Stanislav Kokorin committed a false start.

In the women's event, France's Anouk Jaubert was triumphant in the final, beating Mariia Krasavina of Russia.
