2016 World Youth Climbing Championships

by Jelisa Dunbar, coach for the Canadian Youth Climbing Team, and CCC Head Coach.

 

To compete in an IFSC World Climbing Championship is an experience like no other. Only a handful of Canada’s best athletes are selected to travel abroad to represent the country each year.

Training began early July in Montreal, where coaches, physiotherapists, psychologists and route setters spent the week testing, evaluating and preparing the Youth National team for the adventures that lay ahead. For many athletes, this was the last time we would see them until the World Championships began November 2016 in China.
