IFSC Flash Format

Nov 10, 2021

How will it work?

  • There will be 12 problems in the Competition Area for the Qualifier Round
    • 6 problems per gender
    • Problems will be identified 1 to 6, and clearly labeled
  • Through the Qualification Round, each athlete will need to complete all 6 problems of their gender and category
  • Athletes will have 4 minutes to complete a problem, with as many attempts as necessary
  • Each problem will be judged
  • Beta videos for each problem will be available on the CEC YouTube Channel by the Technical Meeting

How will it work the day of?

  • Each Category will be subdivided into two Groups – Group A and Group B
    • Group A will do problems 1, 2, 3 – Rest – 4, 5, 6
    • Group B will do problems 4, 5, 6 – Rest – 1, 2, 3
  • The Judges of Problems #1 and Problems #4 will call athletes by their name and/or bib numbers. The first athlete will then get their 5min ON, before moving to the rest chair for 4 min
  • Participants will have a longer break after their first 3 problems, before moving on to their next 3 problems
  • If you miss you turn on either problem 1 or 4, you will be unable to climb that set of problems. You may still climb and collect a score on the other set of three problems. So, pay attention to the flow!

Check out this video that describes the flow very well!
*note that for the 2023-2024 Senior Nationals, it will be 4min ON, 4min OFF, not 5/5.

 

Why will this format be used at all CEC Boulder National Championships this year?

  • The IFSC has shared that this format will be used more in future IFSC events, including all Youth World Championships. CEC would like to give our athletes experience in this format.
  • A classic iso format 4 on / 4 off with the anticipated numbers we will have would mean some athletes having to be in isolation for more than 10 hours.
  • The flash format keeps the value of a time limit (4 min) unlike the scramble format.

Any other questions?

Today, the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games proposed to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to add Para Climbing to the 2028 Paralympic Sport Program. That is one step closer to inclusion of our sport in the Paralympic Games!
