Here is a fun old photo of Coach Robyn with fellow competitors Lynn Hill and a very young Katie Brown at the X-Games II in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1996. Sport Climbing didn’t last long in the X-Games, but it was included in the first several years of the event. The 1999 results are not reflected below. Later on there was a brief stint of bouldering at the X-Games, but that didn’t last either.

As you can see below, Coach Robyn won the first X-Games event, in 1995. Awesome!

Coach Robyn won Sport Climbing at the inaugural X-Games in 1995

Hopefully Sport Climbing makes it into the Olympics so our best climbers can again be represented on a world stage alongside many other sports.
