Abi Stringer - Continental team Youth B

What sparked your interest in climbing and how long have you been climbing?

- I started to climb when I saw the first Princess Diaries movie, where the main character goes climbing, and I though it looked really cool. So I went climbing for the first time and have been climbing for the 6 years since!


Your home gym is?

- The Edge 

What are you proud of achieving so far and what are your goals?

- I am very proud of coming first in speed climbing nationals in 2016 and coming first in NSW for speed climbing in 2016. I am also ecstatic to be part of the Aussie team. 

I really would love to be able to get 12 seconds on the speed route, which is 4 seconds off my current PB. 


Do you have any idols?

- Shauna Coxey, Janja Ganbret and Stan Kokorin. And of course my speed trainer Jarred Jordan.


If you have any sponsors? 

- No, but I would love to be sponsored :)


Do you have a fun fact about, a food you can’t go without, pre competition superstitions or routines?

- My friend actually introduced me to speed climbing a couple years ago and then I really got into it. And I absolutely cannot go a day without having a bowl or 2 of Sultana Bran.
