213 young competitors from 24 different countries competed all weekend in lead and speed disciplines in Youth B, Youth A and Junior categories including 18 climbers for the Junior British Team.
3 British climbers made the final, with Kitty Wallace (youth A) finishing in 5th, Tara Hayes (Youth B) in her first ever international competition finishing in 6th and Ed Hamer (Junior) keeping up his run of form from last year in 10th, so congratulations to all them and the rest of team GB for putting in stellar performances.
This is a great start to the season and we hope it will continue to rise towards some podium positions in the future.
