2020 Oceania Combined Climbing Championships
The 2020 Oceania Combined Climbing Championships (OCCC) is the first Oceania selection event for the 2020 Olympic games. Subject to Sport Climbing Australia (SCA) and AOC Olympic selection policies one male and one female athlete may be nominated to participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic game.
The Oceania Council of Sport Climbing has decided that 10 Australian and 10 New Zealand climbers will be able to participate in the OCCC for each gender.
This policy seeks to continue the pursuit of:
- (a) High expectations;
- (b) High levels of commitment to effort; and
- (c) High levels of support for committed athletes and rigorous assessment of their commitment to the sport.
SCA expects that all athletes who are offered and accept a position to participate in the OCCC, will commit to participate in the event. It is the responsibility of selected athletes to ensure that they comply with this policy, including attending required selection events and otherwise complying with all applicable terms and conditions by the relevant deadlines.
Athletes selected to participate in the OCCC will form the 2020 Australian Combined Climbing Team (Team).
The SCA National Selection Panel (Selectors) will select athletes who it considers in its absolute discretion will have the best chance of meeting either or both the following two objectives:
- (a) athletes who will produce the best results at the OCCC; and/or
- (b) athletes with potential to progress towards better results at future Combined Championships.
