2023 Pan American Games Kick Off Next Week!

The XIX Pan American Games are scheduled to take place from October 20th to November 5th, 2023 in the Chilean capital of Santiago.

As the largest multi-sport event in the Americas, over 6,800 athletes will participate in the Games, competing in 38 different sports. Sport Climbing will make its debut appearance at the Pan American Games in 2023, after a vote by the LVIII General Assembly of Panam Sports secured the sport’s position on the programme.

Olympic Qualification Event

This year the Pan American Games will also serve as an Olympic qualification event for sport climbing. With two (2) qualification spots available for the boulder/lead combined and speed events, the top male and female athletes in each discipline will earn their spot to compete at the 2024 Olympic games in Paris. (unless said top athlete has already qualified, in which case, the next highest placed athlete will receive the qualification)

While one of the US Pan American team members, Emma Hunt, secured her Olympic qualification at the 2023 World Championships earlier this year, the rest of the team will be vying for their chance to secure their spot in Paris.
