Climbing makes its big Olympic debut this Tuesday in Tokyo.

Climbers compete in three independent events: the "difficulty" which consists of climbing as high as possible on a wall of about fifteen meters, the "boulder" where climbers must climb blocks 4.5 meters high, and the "Speed", a test where you have to set the best possible time on a course known by heart.

The siblings of Guyanese origin will aim for the medal in Tokyo during the final scheduled for Thursday (2:10 p.m.).
