Iranian wall climber fastest in world: CBC News
Iranian wall climber Reza Alipour who has recently set a new record in the world was named Usain Bolt of speed climbing.

'The 23-year-old set a world record in winning gold at a World Cup climbing event in China last weekend,' CBS News reported.

“Wall climbing is an Olympic sport and 'Persian Cheetah' is the fastest at it.”

“Alipour, nicknamed the 'Persian Cheetah' scaled a 15-meter wall in just 5.48 seconds, shattering the previous record of 5.60 seconds held by Ukraine's Danyil Boldyrev.”

“Russia's Aleksandr Shikov and Vladislav Deulin took silver and bronze, clocking times of 5.61 seconds and 7.36 seconds, respectively.”

Speed climbing is one of three climbing disciplines that will be introduced at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, joining bouldering and sport climbing.

“Alipour may have his work cut out for him on the Olympic stage, as the medals in Tokyo will be decided by combining the scores from all three disciplines in a kind of vertical triathlon.”

Usain St Leo Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter. He is the first person to hold both the 100 meters and 200 meters world records since fully automatic time became mandatory.
