Wow – The bouldering Worldcup and European Championship in Munich was an amazing event. The «Olympiastadium München» is one of my favourite competition venues. The great climbing wall, awesome boulders, the huge and supportive crowd and a great atmosphere make the climbing experience unique. I had been looking forward to this competition since the beginning of the year! With 292 competitors, men and women, this Worldcup has been the biggest in the history of sport climbing so far.
Fortunately, I started quite early in qualification, 13th in my group. Before my start I had a great warm-up session with my coach, what gave me confidence and even more motivation. I felt strong and couldn’t wait to finally go out, climb and have fun. The setting was awesome – coordinativ and dynamic moves, balancy slabs, jumps…(video). I topped two problems and fell at the top hold of two others. Right after finishing the last problem and taking off my climbing shoes, I said to myself:
I was focused throughout the whole competition. I tried as hard as I could and did my best until the very last try of the last boulder. I could not have done any better and I enjoyed climbing in front of a cheering crowd so much! No matter what the result will be, I am satisfied with my performance.
