My competitive spirit was born 15 years ago when I began climbing. The first competitions I participated in were in local gyms in Bogota and Manizales City, Colombia (The wall, Body Tech Gym, Universidad Nacional, Universidad Javeriana, Gym Roca Solida, etc).
Soon after, I participated in some competitions in France in a local gym in the city of Lyon. I now compete in competitions in Canada.
After several years of competing, all I can say is that no matter how good you are climbing– outdoor or indoor– training and competing under pressure are very different. Competing under pressure is a point you must focus on improving. Competitions are directly affected by your mental level and control. So, if you want to perform well, you must work on metal training as well as physical training.
