Bio-Logico and the Italian Championship 2014

So in the last month I did a lot at first I went to Milano for the last Italian Cup of the season. Everything went well and it was the first time again that my body and mind where quiet strong.
The semifinal round was good and I did 3 of 4 problems. Than the final round was really amazing the problems where great and I toped all problems. With this victory I won also the overall title in bouldering.

So the next week I was super motivated for some rock so I went with Seve to Narango. Narango is a beautiful crag with a superb view on the garda lake. I started trying Bio-Logico a really boldery route with two hard sections. The second section was really hard for me because I'm quiet small. The fifth day I managed two climb this amazig 9a, I was super happy.

Than we went to Modena for the Italian Championship. I had no expectations but everything went well. In the semifinal round I topped all problems but I did a lot of mistakes and entered as 4th in the final round. The final round was really hard. The first problem was my style and I did it in two tries. Second problem was way to hard and nobody did the bonus. The third problem was a battle against the time. I was sure that I could do it, so I did the last try and was on top amazing!
Italian Champion 2014 thanks to my sponsors and all my fiends thanks a lot.

Worldcup Chongqing and Baku

So lets talk about the Boulder Worldcup in Chongqing. For me it was the first time in China and i think it was a good experience. The flight was quiet long 14h but it was okay. Chongqing is really impressive. The streets are really crowded and the drivers are really crazy. So first day in Chongqing was normal, the air is really bad but the hotel is good. The competition wall is perfect and the volumes are nice. So for me the competition started bad, I was too nervous and felt two times under the top on the first problem. On the second problem it was better and after some tries I maneged to cimb it. Third problem was really my style and I flashed it. The other two were hard and so I finished with two of fife in 24th position.

So lets talk about Baku. The city of Baku is amazing and the buildings are crazy. The competition wall was not so great but okay. So we started the qualitication round and the problems where super hard. I did only one problem and I was qualified for semifinals. The semifinal was again super hard and I did one problem finishing on 9th place.

So for me it was an amazing experience to take part to this two Wordlcups and I'm really happy that I can do such comps.

First Italian Cup in Rome

The first Italian Cup was really good. The organisation was perfect and everithig went well. I have never seen an Italian Cup with soo many people in Qualification. I was already qualified for the Semifinal. Semifinal was good and I managed to climb 3 of 4 problems. So i entered into finals as second behind Gabriele Moroni. After semis it started to rain but luckily the most spectators staied there to watch finals. In finals we started with a hard slab, my foot slipped at the last moves.

Second problem was amazing, a really huge jump and than a loong move to a small hold. I did the jump, but was not able to grab the next hold.

Third problem was easy for me and I flashed it. Fourth was good some endurance and than a big jump to the top. I was able to flash also this problem and finished on the second place. The hard training over the last months is starting to give me some satisfactions. Now some relax and than off to China!!!!
