Sport Climbing Bouldering | Lead Combination | Speed
A direct legacy of the Games, Le Bourget Sport Climbing Venue will be one of two sports facilities built specifically for the Games, the other being the Aquatics Centre in Saint- Denis.
Looking beyond the Games, the two facilities are something Seine-Saint-Denis – a department with a lack of sports facilities, ranking 103rd out of 105 – both needs and expects. Five climbing walls will be used during the Games: one indoor warm-up wall in a purpose built sports hall (part of the lasting legacy of the Games) and four outdoor walls, including three competition walls (for the two events on the programme, i.e. speed and the combined boulder and lead event) and one warm-up wall.
The facility will be at the heart of a Games cluster just a stone’s throw away from the media village in Dugny and La Courneuve Shooting Range, and relatively near the Stade de France and the Aquatics Centre 5 km away. After the Games, the temporary climbing walls – just like the temporary pools and the urban sports structures at Place de Concorde – could be moved to other locations that have yet to be decided, benefitting local residents, clubs and associations.
