Good interview. Total legend at only 18 years old. She may have won the boulder World Cup this year too if she hadn't skipped a round to train for lead. Will be interesting to see how she does with Ashima now starting to compete in World Cups.

Two of my fave Janja moments:

First lead World Cup, (Chamonix 2015) in the final: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8ePjiqjKYo&t=7869

Munich Boulder World Cup 2017, W2. Particularly impressive as none of the other competitors did this. In fact only one, Stasa Gejo, got past the first move: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2MphXypjD4&t=3482
