Last weekend, I participated at my first world cup this year in Imst, Austria. One week after the European cup.

I liked the comp even if I noticed that I need more power and strength for performing. Nevertheless, I climbed well : I got stopped because of time in my first route, not far away of the top and that's what I didn't get to the semifinals. Time really became a limiting factor and the way you get to the top doesn't matter any more. It's seems that the rules want that we climb fast but that the beauty of slow climbers and how they can control some moves are uninteresting. The second route was a bit harder and more powerful but I could fight for a while, I finished 24th in this one. But because of my first route (and the time), I finished 32th. I stayed for the semifinals (evening) and the finals (the next day) of course to see Mathilde Brumagne performing in the semis and in the final !

Saturday, to pass the time, I wanted to do some climbing ! Fortunately, Sebastien Berthe was not far away and so we went rockclimbing in a beautiful crag. I onsighted a wonderful 8a and tried some other hard routes ! We finished the day near the lake...

Now back again to the training for the last comp of my school holidays at the World Youth Championships in Singapore !!!
