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:
All three Raboutous have had a great summer in Europe, most recently with a trip to Magic Wood, a famous bouldering area in Switzerland, where they all saw some big sends. Read the full story here: Kid’s rule in Magic Wood 27 Crags.
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:
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
Shawn and Brooke had fun watching the Lead World Cup in Briancon, France, with their friends Mirko Caballero and Ashima Shirashi.

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!
