With the Summer Olympics in Tokyo now only two months away many athletes who already qualified continue to train knowing their moment is getting closer. One of those athletes lives and trains in Salt Lake City but her heart is on the other side of the world.
A World Cup competition for climbers will be held in downtown Salt Lake City over the weekend, bringing out many of the athletes that will compete in the event at the Tokyo Olympics, including one man who was born and raised in Utah.
Salt Lake City has brought back Olympic level competition to Utah as it will host back-to-back IFSC climbing World Cups for bouldering and speed.
As the Olympic torch continued to rack up miles on its journey through Japan, a new public opinion poll indicated a majority of Japanese citizens said the games should be canceled this summer because of the pandemic.
The journey to the Olympics leads all kinds of athletes right through the Beehive State. Whether its winter or summer, Utah offers Olympic hopefuls a place to compete, or a place to train.
For athletes, the only thing better than being an Olympian is being an Olympian twice. One Utah man hopes to do just that in Beijing next year, even though he feels the weight of an entire continent on his shoulders.
