We’d like to congratulate Team ABC Elite athlete Margo Hayes on her 7th place finish at this year’s IFSC Youth World Championships!

Here are the results from Margo’s category: General result female youth B lead

Margo flashed both of her qualifiers and was tied for 2nd after semis.  As you can see, her category had a very close final, with 5 of the 8 girls falling from or moving off the same hold! That hold 26 must have been quite the crux. In the end Margo took a very proud 7th place.

Way to go Margo!!!

Here are some photos of the event:

Shawn Raboutou has been having a good summer in France. Most recently he visited Fontainebleau with the French team where he climbed several 7C (V9) boulders and the very committing Salle Goss Assis (8A/V11). More about that in this article on Kairn.com: Shawn Raboutou à Bleau (I recommend google translate if you don’t have a translation browser).

Shawn also competed in a European  Youth Bouldering Cup and got 2nd place. Here are some photos:

Brooke in Mom’s Old Jacket

Posted on Updated on

Here’s a fun shot of Brooke trying on her mom’s old Comp Podium jacket from her World Cup winning days. She’s still got a ways to go before it fits but she’s certainly climbing hard enough!
