Fifteen years after the 4th World Championships were held at the Zénith in Paris, climbing is back in France in 2012. The 12th World Climbing Championships will be held at the Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy (Parisscolaris Bercy sports centre).
Following on the success of the last few years, and in particular that of the 2011 World Championships at Arco, we feel that this international event will prove to be a milestone in our sport.
Able-bodied and disabled athletes from all over the world are going to come together to write a new page in the history of sport in general, and climbing in particular.
Especially since climbing has been included in the "short list" of potential disciplines for the 2020 games, as agreed by the International Olympic Committee, we hope that the 2011 World Championships will help reach this magnificent goal, which the climbers of yesterday, of today and of course of tomorrow, deserve.
Keep climbing : “swifter, higher, stronger”.

Marco SCOLARIS, President of the International Federation of Sport Climbing

The FFME is proud to celebrate the 2012 World Championships in Paris.  Organising this international sporting event is a seminal moment for climbing in France.
With the International Olympic Committee’s decision to retain climbing for the "short list" of potential disciplines for the 2020 Olympic Games, hosting such an event will be an opportunity to spotlight this booming sport, and the sporting and educational values it promotes.
The 2012 climbing World Championships are already a success, given the number of athletes and countries that are signed up to take part in the qualifications and finals for the Bouldering, Lead and Speed competitions.
We are particularly proud to welcome disabled athletes to the competition. This is a natural expression of our desire to open up our sport to all ages, all levels, and all abilities.
Allow me to thank all of our partners, our volunteers, our athletes and spectators, who will all contribute to the success of this unforgettable competition.
Let’s make the most of Paris 2012 as we await the International Olympic Committee’s verdict in 2013.!

Pierre YOU, President of the Fédération Française de la Montagne et de l’Escalade
