The last worldcup of the season took place in Munich – like every year. And as every year it’s the biggest event: thousands of spectators, an amazing atmosphere at the „Olympiapark“ and pretty much always good weather 😉

This year the amount of competitors reached with 242 a new peak and it was clear, that it would be hard to reach semis. While watching the Men’s qualification round we already saw, that the boulders were waaaay to easy and many male competitors didn’t reach semis although they topped all boulders. Unfortunately the same thing happened at the woman’s quali. I topped 4 boulders, but with too many attempts. Only 2 girls were able to top problem no. 5 – so no semis again for me that time. I was really sad about it, because I felt pretty strong during the warm up.

Thank god there are 4 more weeks until the World Championships in Paris (12.-19. September). So I can train some more and get fit(ter) to finally compete again in the Semis 🙂
