WYCH Innsbruck 2017 Day 1
Day one at the World Youth Climbing Champs in Innsbruck Austria was dedicated to Youth A Bouldering qualifications.
Originally the decision was taken for no spectators to be viewing the guys qualifications, when this was communicated to the teams last night in the technical meeting there was an uproar as many parents had traveled across the world with their kids and to be told they wouldn’t be allowed to see them climb was not an acceptable solution for them.
Thankfully the parents and supporters were eventually allowed in the area to watch the kids, the downside being it was almost impossible to get in and take photos so I focused on the girls event outside.
It was a tough set, and there were many tears, but in the end one top in two attempts proved enough to progress to tomorrow evenings semi-finals.
