STORY SCRIPT:

The first-ever sport climbing Olympic gold medal has been won by Austria’s Sandra Lettner at this summer’s Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018.

After qualifying for the final by finishing in the top six of the qualification round, the finalists once again completed the three disciplines of Speed, Bouldering and Lead to look for the lowest overall score.

17-year-old Lettner snatched gold by the narrowest of margins. She tied on 18 points with Slovenian Vita Lukan, 17, but won due to her superior performance in the Speed and Boulder disciplines.

Lettner’s Austrian compatriot Laura Lammer, also 17, completed the podium by finishing with a total of 20 points.
