1st World Cup of 2013 – Chongqing

2 Comments News, Videos

The first round of the IFSC Climbing World Cup 2013 series took place in Chongqing last week.

I was unable to attend due to work commitments but I will be at every other event this year.

Mina, Shauna and Diane all went out to represent and made it through to semi’s. Shauna had a great first comp coming back from injury making finals and coming 5th overall.

Here is the highlights video; can’t wait to be at the next one in France next week!

    Hi John,

    Why were there no British men competing in China? Is it a funding issue?

      Hi Jason,

      Thanks for your message and sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you!

      There is some funding available but it is a bit of a mission to get to in terms of visa’s and travel etc.

      From my perspective as I’m doing all the other rounds this year I can’t get the time off.

      All the best,
