IFSC World Climbing Championships Arco

The world's capital of climbing, Arco, held the 2011 World Climbing Championships. The event was not just a climbing competition, it was a celebration of the sport.

150 athletes competed in the men's bouldering event and it was going to be tough to reach the semi-final with so many strong climbers present. I was able to climb 3 blocs and qualified for the semi-final. The next day I chilled out and thought about the following round. I felt really determined. I ended up 9th. The final was incredible, the field below the stage was completely full of spectators and some of the performances from the athletes were just mind-blowing.

Thanks to Nick Clement and Tom Sugden for providing support throughout the event, it was very much appreciated.
