Yesterday there was an important climbing event in San Pietro Square Rome, Italy.
The Italian FClimbing Federation and IFSC (intenational Climbing Federation) organized a full day rich in speed climbing exibition and competion.
In the first morning, international and national climbing speed leaders, such as Leonardo Gontero, Chiara Rogora, Simon Bosler and Urko Carmona (two time paraclimbing world champion) , they did a demonstration of speed climbing in the wonderful theatre of San Pietro Square.
In the afternoon Paraclimbing athletes competed for the title of Italian champion.
The last competition of the day was the Lazio Regional Championship; the young athletes have done a great show climbing on the large artificial wall in front of the church of San Pietro in Vatican.
This event was a wonderful initiative, it is very important for the realization of the Olympic dream of all climbers. The federation is working hard because the climbing will became an Olympic sport.
I hope that my photos are a little part of the olympic climbing dream!
