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


I have been competing for around 6 years now but I have been climbing my whole life, whether it be a tree or a bookshelf. Being on the wall felt so natural from the first step onto the wall at 4 years old at a birthday party, climbing for fun quickly changed to regular training at the age of 12. Ever since that point my life has changed for the better.


Your home gym is?


My home gym is Urban Climb, I have been climbing there for longer than I can remember but I can’t see myself anywhere else.


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


Last year I said I was proud of everything I have done because it made me who I am as a climber today and I can’t disagree. Whether it is bad or good, impressive or not, it has brought me to this point and I can’t not be proud of improvement through a rollercoaster of a climb.


Do you have any idols?


I have many idols, too many to list. There are so many climbers that motivate me and inspire me every day, from climbers in my gym to the competitors I watch in the World cups.


If you have any sponsors?


I am happily sponsored by Urban Climb, ClimbICP and Climbing Anchors. Wouldn’t be here today without their support.


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


Not really, to prep I train hard and try to stretch. I also try my best to stay away from icecream.
