  • Speed climbing: Olympics' newest, fastest sport

    With a winning time of under 7 seconds, speed climbing can claim to be the Olympic Games' fastest sport. 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. But in the small final it was a much closer affair with Italian Leonardo Gontero winning in a time of 6.25 seconds, beating Russian Aleksandr Shikov by three hundredths of a second. In the women's event, France's Anouk Jaubert was triumphant in the final, beating Mariia Krasavina of Russia.
