IFSC European Championship 2015 and preparations for 1st & 2nd Boulder World Cup in Toronto and Vail!

I had an amazing start of this season!

Finishing 1st after nationals I was confident that I could get a semi final spot in the IFSC European Championship 2015 in Innsbruck last weekend.
I felt strong and climbed really well in the Qualification and ended up 22 in my group (Results).

There were a lot of power moves and I felt like I was strong enough to play along. Ended up failing on the slab, which didn't fell so difficult at first, but it's easy to get too confident when you have to focus.

Before the next events I have been focusing a lot on coordination training and balance training. I have also tuned in on my mental training and tried to prepare as much as possible for the next events.  

Now its 2 days before I fly out to Canada to compete in this years first IFSC Boulder World Cup in Toronto. I am super psyched to get the chance to compete in these competitions. The only reason this is possible is because of the support I get from my sponsor Orgreen Optics. I am really grateful that they believe in what I do and it makes me focus even more on my goals!

1st place @ Danish Boulder Championship 2015

To work really hard to be able to controle every little aspect of a moment is fantastic when the moment comes and you are not surprised by anything and can controle the outcome with surplus.

Thats short for how I experienced The Danish Boulder Championship 2015.

It's fairly easy to build a machine, I have come to that conclusion, but it's much more complex to thrive to master your own mind in a competition situation. The mental game is everything and I found that being able to controle myself gives me the opportunity to climb at my actual level all the time.

Peter Thulstrup filmed some of my attempts in the Qualification and Final round. I managed to flash all 6 Qualification boulders, and all 4 Final boulders. With a perfect run I stated that I have started working on my mental game.

Taking 1st place in this competition 2 years in a row is a really nice feeling and I look forward to the rest of this competition season!

Watch the videos:

So with the machine in place, there's only chess left..

Wow, I cant believe it has been so long since my last post.

Honestly I haven't been up to much.

At least thats how I feel when I look at how many beautiful routes and boulders I could have climbed, or how many new places I have seen.
I haven't been sleeping on the couch for half a year either.

So first of all, I found a new way of sharing my everyday adventures through Instagram, which is much easier than writing long blog posts. You know, a picture says more than a thousand words..

I haven't skipped many training sessions, and I am clocking around 8-10 sessions per week, so it must take me somewhere.
As something new I am now sharing my competition and training experiences with the new Youth Team. Its nice to feel that you can pass your stuff on to the up coming kids! They seem to enjoy listening, so maybe all these competitions are worth something.

2014 I was lucky enough to get the climber of the year award. It is very nice that everybody voted for me and that they show their appreciation for what I do. It gives me a boost and makes me push harder!

2014 were also the year where I dreamed of taking part in the CWIF competition in Sheffield, England, but had to enjoy the madness on the live stream together with the rest of the world!

But guess what, together with Katrine Vandet Salling, Im participating in this weekends CWIF 2015! It is going to be a really nice competition and Im really psyched to climb in the Works, and together with some of the best guys in the world. This must be the best way to start the season.

Make sure to follow the action on the live stream!
