Colin Duffy


Colin Duffy was the youngest member of the USA Climbing team that competed in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Games where he qualified to the finals and finished in 7th place. He clinched his spot on the team, and in the history books, in 2020 for the sports debut in the Olympics. He started climbing when he was just 5 years old at ABC Kids Climbing in Boulder, Colorado, where he still trains today. Not only is Colin known in the competition climbing world, he has made a name for himself as he conquered some of the most impressive outdoor climbs at the Red River Gorge and Hurricane, Utah. Outside of sport, he is a sophomore at the University of Colorado Boulder where he majors in applied math. He also enjoys working puzzles and Rubik’s cubes. His family works closely with the Denver Rescue Mission and the Denver Food Bank. Colin has helped rebuild local climbing trails and looks to expand his efforts on causes that preserve and maintain climbing and hiking trails. He made history by winning both bouldering and lead gold at the same World Cup series, which had never been done before. At the 2023 World Championships, Duffy secured his spot at the Paris Olympic Games by bringing home the silver medal. He is currently the only two-time U.S. climbing Olympian. Instagram: @colinclimbs
