Here’s a short message from Edyta as she reflects on the Chamonix competition and prepares for the Arco Rock Master comp!
Congratulations to Edyta Ropek for her silver medal in the Chamonix World Cup
I had won silver medal In World Cup In Chamonix. This was an exciting event! Competition was held on official 15 meter IFSC Speed Record Wall. After qualification round I was third, and in the 1/8 of finals I had to compete with the Russian athlete Natalia Titova. This was most stressful battle in all competition. I had won this run with 12,41 seconds to 12,53 seconds! You can see on the photo, how small difference it was!
Than in next run I had to compete with my countrywoman Monika Prokopiuk, I won that hit with 11,55 seconds to 12,47 seconds. But next hit was the fastest one in all competition, I had to ménage very good Russian athlete Julia Lewoczkina, who had won two cups this year. In very fast run I beat her with 10,57 seconds to 10,98 s.
In the final hit I’ve made small mistake, and Russian Ksenia Aleksiewa had won. I’m very happy of silver medal, I feel really strong, I know that gold was in my range. Now I go to Arco in Italy for Rock Master competition.
