Wow what a week!
I headed off to Spain on Sunday 7th September for my first World Championships. Arrived mid afternoon, to warm but rainy conditions. Wasn’t prepared for rain.
Registration and medicals on Monday, a 3 hour wait for a few minutes consultation. No problems with my categorisation.
Free time to explore and relax.
Tuesday had a training session to focus on the communication between my sight guide and myself. It was very hot, but we managed a productive session.
Wednesday was a rest day.
Thursday were the qualifying climbs, 2 routes.
Friday, another rest day, then Finals on Saturday.
See http://www.ifsc-climbing.org for video of my final climb, as well as all the finals and results. I came 3rd, pleased with my performance. The route had good holds, but the overhang was immense, and the route seemed to go on forever!
More training needed.
