The United States will enter the maximum of four sport climbing athletes to the inaugural Olympic sport climbing competition, two men and two women. Brooke Raboutou was the first American climber to qualify for Tokyo with her ninth-place finish at the 2019 World Sport Climbing Championships. Nathaniel Coleman and Kyra Condie both booked their tickets to Tokyo shortly after at an Olympic qualifying event in Toulouse, France. Finally, at the 2020 Pan American Championships, 17-year-old Colin Duffy notched a surprising victory to secure the final U.S. Olympic bid.
