OR Show recap from Natasha Barnes

 
OR Show recap from Natasha Barnes
 
August 06, 2010 -  Natasha Barnes    
 

Earlier this week I traveled to Salt Lake City for the Outdoor Retailer Show and the United Bouldering Championships. As for the competition, I qualified in 8th place but didn't climb very well in Semi-finals. I’m a little disappointed about my performance at the competition. I know its my first competition in 3 years and 13th isn’t so bad, but in the last two weeks at the gym I felt pretty strong so climbing poorly in Semi-finals was a bit of a let down. I still had fun though and now I am even more motivated to train and climb harder.

 

 

I have resolved to compete at the Noreaster, the next leg of the UBC tour at the end of September. Hopefully I’ll be stronger for this event. After the competition I went to check things out at the Show. First order of business; Fiveten booth, Nicky Dyal, Sanam Pejuhesh, Colette McInerney. Lovely ladies.  I got to meet people from Fiveten (Nancy and Kelsey) that I’ve exchanged many emails with but have never met in person as well as some new people AND I got to see all the new shoes that are coming out. GET PSYCHED. They are coming out with some great looking down-turned shoes that I am really excited to try.
