In August, Brooke Raboutou became the first American to qualify for the Olympics in sport climbing, a sport that combines three disciplines of rock climbing: lead climbing, speed climbing, and bouldering. Brooke already has several world titles under her belt and comes from a family of climbers (her mom won four consecutive World Cup titles), and she’ll need all of that experience and grit to compete for Olympic gold. One of Brooke’s primary goals at the Games, though: to grow her sport in front of a global audience.
