Rock Junior 2013: the final report
01/09/2013. The second and final day of Rock Junior 2013 came to an end with the Under 14 Cup, Kid's Rock and Family Rock, the climbing festival for the youngest. The Italians Laura Rogora and Filip Schenk won the trophy in memory of Tito Traversa, the young climbing champion who passed away, and the awards ceremony for this prize proved an extremely moving moment.
The alarm clock rang early this morning for the second day of Rock Junior. The sun had just enough time to shine its light onto the Climbing Stadium and along they came, the protagonists of the Under-14 Cup. After yesterday’s Boulder and Speed, the time was now ripe for the third test, Lead. The classic competition, the one with a rope and harness. And the one that defies gravity up the extremely high, legendary Rock Master wall where ever since ever the biggest champions do battle. The goal lay way up there, almost in the clouds. A true, exciting and impossible mission for these great little climbers. But they set off fearlessly to conquer their slice of the skies. They climbed with strength and determination, dancing from one handhold to the next foothold. They pushed themselves. Fought to the bitter end, displaying their art of climbing. It was clear that this was a real undertaking for everyone. No matter how high they got, it seemed as if they always reached that point where they had given their very best. They were, after all, playing their favourite game. And they certainly hadn’t lost the great “meaning of the game.” Read the complete article on the official website.
