Molly Competes at UK Youth Bouldering Championships

Molly Thompson-Smith is Berghaus’ youngest sponsored athlete, and she has recently been competing at the British Youth Open Boulder Championships.

 

Fresh from her victory last week, she continued her recent good form by beating a top quality field containing several British team members. Molly qualified for the final in 2nd place, having topped 7 out of 8 problems in 11 attempts.

 

The final saw Molly flash problems 1 and 3, and topping problem 2 on her 5th attempt giving her 3 tops from 7 attempts, which was enough to win by 1 attempt.

 

What made Molly’s achievement even more remarkable, was that she had not even been training for Bouldering, instead her focus being lead competition where she reigns supreme and is the current senior champion.

 

Molly was naturally happy that a very long year has finished on a high. Molly is tired from all her exploits and is looking forward to a well earned rest but is equally looking forward to next season and focused on trying to add the junior bouldering titular to her senior lead title.

 

We will here more from Molly in the new year and wish her all the best for her future competitions!
