VIDEO: Why do Crowds Matter in Climbing Competitions?

There will be no spectators at Sport Climbing's Olympic debut next week. What impact will this have on the athletes? In a post-round interview last week, Team GB Taekwondoin and double Olympic champion Jade Jones described how the lack of a crowd and support from family and friends had affected her ability to fight, leading to a first round defeat.

Climber and video creator Albert Ok researched this topic at the start of the pandemic and produced a video describing the role that a crowd can play in athletes' performances. He also interviewed me about the crowdless CWIF event in 2020, which featured piped cheering and clapping — something that is featuring at the Olympic Games, too.
