In March 2019, GB Junior Climbing Team coach Ian Dunn was invited to coach 6 of Asia and Australia's top young climbing athletes at Mori Park in the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan, on a week-long training camp funded by international financial services company JLL. Climbing participation and competitive expectations are on the rise in Asia and ahead of Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024, these teenagers are setting their sights on representing their countries at Olympic level. Using innovative motion technology and years of experience in coaching, Ian was tasked with helping them to achieve their ambitions. The project was filmed and short profiles of each athlete and Ian were shared on National Geographic's website.
