Success at the first EYC of 2018

Jo Neame at the British Opens Taken by Rachel Carr

I’ve been flat out over the last 6 months. Too busy to even upload any information to the website. It is an exciting year for me as a coach;

I have 5 athletes competing in the European Youth circuit as well as seniors competing in the World Cups too. Alongside this, I am working with some athletes who have been at the top level and are making come back too! Exciting!

Not to mention the return of the Youth Climbing Symposium, ROCUP Holidays, coaching trips for the RAF, working towards climbing getting into the Invictus Games as well as all of the future Olympians whom I work with too.
I love my job.

This post is dedicated to Jo Neame however. A client who will do everything you ask and more. I have been working with Jo Neame for about a year now. She has developed so much as a climber – she’s put on functional muscle, she’s improved her movement and, in my opinion, is just getting started.

Jo is in her final year competing as a junior in the IFSC EYCs. The first event of the year was at Voiron, France over the 7/8th April 2018. We warmed up Jo really specifically, mimicking the crux moves of her qualifying routes.

She smashed it, qualifying for the finals in 6th position.

The great news is that she came out to finals with a cool head and moved up to 5th, narrowly missing out on a podium position by 2 points! Great work Jo!!
