Last week was the time when three final editions of the 2013 World Cup in Speed climbing took place in Asia. The competitor supported by TOP30, Entre Prises, Five Ten, Azoty Group & Elzat, Edyta Ropek, in spite of a serious knee injury, finished this year's competitions as one of the first ten of the world's best speed climbers!
Day three of the competition was completely dedicated to speed climbing. The entire speed comp was to be run during that day, which gave the sport-only climbers a day off. We (the US kids who were not competing in speed) got to sleep in, and then head over to the comp just as the practice runs were ending. The United States crushed in speed, and had seven athletes place in the top five, which included four medals! Huge congrats to John Brosler and Kyra Condie for taking home the bronze, as well as to Kayla...
Satisfied with her performance in the third edition of the World Cup in speed climbing, a competitor supported by Five Ten, TOP30, Entre-Prises, Grupa Azoty and Elzat, Edyta Ropek has just come back to Poland. The inhabitant of Tarnów has returned to the World Cup competition after a break caused by a very serious knee injury. In spite of missing one edition Edyta Ropek takes the 9th place in the World Cup 2013 classification as yet.
The World Games competition in Cali was the biggest happiness and success for me. I was delighted with utterly everything that had something to do with sports competition and rivalry. The possibility to enter the event and fully participate in it brought me the unimaginable pleasure.
The two weeks before nationals this year I went to stone summit for a pre-nationals training camp. This was my third year doing it and it's amazing how much it helps. When I climbed there the first day I felt like I had absolutely no endurance and thought I was screwed for nationals... But, after two weeks in that gym, you get endurance whether you want it or not.
After all season of training and comps I had these last 25 days to climb at divisionals, train, and then compete at nationals. This ropes season was my favorite of all of them. I had a fun time competing and training the whole way through. This ropes season was awesome and I cant wait to do it again (after bouldering season J).
