IFSC is broadcasting the World Cup Lead finals in Arco right now 

 

 

This is the 13th WC leg, and the 5th with Lead.

I like this sport but making it a combined makes no sense. Should have been lead and speed but maybe it would have been too much, considering the 4 skateboarding and 8 karate events.

Of all new sports, sports climbing is definitely the best addition in my opinion :)

Completely different than all other sports and not some X-Games "let's just have some fun and don't care about medals" kind of sport. 

 

This whole combined thing is just weird, but alright.

Well, I watched live before maybe 2-3 years, it was some domestic championship and it was funny and interesting.

I agree that I don't like the idea of combined. The aim is probably to showcase it all with the minimun posible quota. Oh well.

Well, we all know that these new additions are a joke. What, we will have 6 teams in baseball/softball, 10 people per category in karate... And people think that women's boxing quotas are thin. :lol::rolleyes:

The combined event is like Omnium in track, maybe it would work.

The main difference is that Omnium is part of the World Championship while the combined isn't. Though I guess they have four years to make it an event, but it looks like the 2016 World Championship won't have a combined event. IMO I think speed would have been the most interesting event to showcase.

 

I think the IOC went overboard in trying to get as many events possible with only a 500 athlete limit. Skatboarding and surfing is fine (20 per event) though the other three would have liked more athletes.
