For the first time in an Australasian sportclimbing competition, footage of competitors will be streamed live to the web at this weekend’s Oceania Sportclimbing Championships.

People all around the world will have access to live coverage of the three-day event, from October 6-8 at BaseCamp Wanaka, by visiting the New Zealand Sportclimbing Federation website,

Footage of more than 120 climbers scaling the 10m-high wall with a five-metre overhang, and the falls that they take, will be captured on two cameras at the event. There will be a live feed from the cameras through to Wellington company CityLink, who will stream it to the internet.

Footage of sportclimbing events is occasionally streamed to the web in the northern hemishphere, but this is the first time for it to occur in the southern hemisphere, NZSF president James Maguire said.

“We are really excited about having live coverage of the Oceania Sportclimbing Championships accessible from the internet. Not only will climbing enthusiasts, and family and friends of competitors be able to watch the event, it also opens it up to a mainstream audience,” Maguire said.
