European Youth Championships: Stefano Carnati wins gold, Eva Scroccaro silver


From July 26 to 28 the European Youth Lead & Speed Climbing Championship took place in Imst (Austria); Italian Stefano Carnati won gold (Youth B) while his teammate Eva Scroccaro won silver (Youth B). The report by Leonardo di Marino.

Italy's youth sport climbing movement is undoubtedly a positive reality. This is the outcome of the European Youth Championships that took place in Imst from July 26 to 28. Three days of competitions and two disciplines, Speed and Lead, and almost 300 athletes competing in Austria's excellent Imst Kletterzentrum.

Friday was dedicated to Speed and this was dominated, unsurprisingly, by Russia who left just medal to another country, France in the Female Junior category. In the Lead discipline things were more even: Austria won two gold medals thanks to Jessica Pilz (Female youth A) and Magdalena Röck (Female juniors); Slovenia won Female youth B thanks to Jania Garnbret who in doing so doubled her takings after winning the Bouldering Championships in May 2013; Sweden's Hannes Puman won gold in his Male youth A category while Russia, thanks to a spectacular climb by Dmitry Fakiryanov, now has the Male juniors European Champion title. Italy is the fifth country to win the European Champion Male youth B title thanks to Stefano Carnati.

The general trend of the competition highlighted Italy's excellent performance. Four athletes qualified for the Finals, three girls and a boy.

The main aim now is the World Youth Championship in August in Canada and, in the long term, the World Youth Championship in Arco in 2015.
