Climbing in the iconic sports complex of Foro Italico in Rome, Italy, Poland’s Aleksandra Miroslaw set things straight from the very beginning, taking first place in the women’s qualification round at the IFSC European Qualifier.

After stopping the clock at 6.37 seconds in her first run, the Polish Speed specialist wrote another page in the record books in the second one, hitting the finish pad at 6.24 seconds – a new world record in the women’s Speed event.

It is the fifth world record set by Miroslaw in 2023 alone, with the four previous ones all being set at the IFSC World Cup in Seoul, South Korea. Also, the Polish 29-year-old is the owner of the last eight records, having set her first one back at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

“I don’t really think about records, I just wanted to run as fast as I can today and do my best, have fun, and I think it worked. I’m very happy to be here, it’s another part of my journey, a new experience. The morning session is done, now I need to focus on tonight because the competition is not done,” said Miroslaw.
