Events & News

Before speed climbing was introduced in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, it debuted in the X Games in the late 1990s. In this clip, Aaron Shamy sets a new speed climbing record during the 1999 San Fransisco X Games.

Who was Shamy? He was an 18-year-old graduate of Olympus High School!  We are excited to honor him as a Distinguished Alumni this fall.  Aaron will also be speaking to the students at a Be Strong Lunch Forum.
