Ondra plans to make preparing for the indoor events in Tokyo his prime focus in 2019. Ondra came in second in the Tokyo Olympic combined at the World Championships in Innsbruck in September behind Austria’s Jakob Schubert and ahead of German Jan Hojer.
In climbing circles, the 25-year-old Czech is known as the master of the impossible. The extreme overhanging route Silence in a cave near Flatlander in Norway which Ondra conquered in September 2017, is regarded as the most difficult rock-climbing route ever mastered the highest grade 9c on the French climbing scale.
He said. “I have to accept it as long as I want to compete in the Olympics. That’s the format there is no option. The only other option is not taking part.”
In Tokyo, 2020 climbers will be competing in a combined event made up of three very different disciplines speed climbing lead and bouldering. The debate about whether this mix of events makes sense is similar to the debate about the combined in downhill skiing.
The critics say they just aren’t but supporters of the format such as Martin Veith director of competitive sport at the German Alpine Club DAV argue that they don’t need to be. Ondra is one of the harshest critics of the format that has been adopted for sport climbing’s Olympic premiere but he has grudgingly agreed to go along with it.
“We are very excited about the Olympic triathlon it is a new discipline that you have to train for specifically it will be interesting to see how specialists deal with disciplines they don’t favor. This will be easier for some than for others.”
Megos has also been competing with a view to the Tokyo 2020 Summer Games since the end of last year. However, he isn’t even sure if he really wants to take part in the Olympics. Adam Ondra’s background is in competition climbing. He was the first to win both the lead and the bouldering World Cup and in 2014 he became the first athlete to win gold in both disciplines. Speed climbing is his weakest discipline something that also applies to Germany’s Alex Megos.
