SCS Nationals 2012 - Carlo Traversi

 
SCS Nationals 2012 - Carlo Traversi
 
April 13, 2012 - 
 

Fresh off the plane from a month of bouldering in Fontainebleau, France; it was straight to the gym to gain some endurance for SCS Nationals.  One week of training was hardly going to be sufficient, but after winning the comp last year I felt obligated to try.  A couple days at Movement, a couple days at the BRC, and a few long sessions at The Spot actually had me feeling pretty good.  Unfortunately, the comp didn't go quite as well as planned and for once strength wasn't to blame.  A slip in qualifiers landed me in 12th Place and quite a few spots out of finals.  I was bummed, but I was also quick to make sure I learned the most from the failure.  Onwards.  Also, I was super proud of my little brother Giovanni Traversi, who is also a Five Ten athlete, for making it to finals and finishing in 6th Place.  The only thing better than competing in finals, is cheering on a member of the family!  More updates to come, including a report about my time in Fontainebleau, and the exciting months ahead!
