Women’s Under 16 – click here WHAT THEY SAID:

Timo Ossig (GER) – men’s Under 16

“The semi-finals went pretty well. I was a bit sad I didn’t top the second or third boulder but overall it was pretty good I think. I could hear my team screaming from the crowd and that gave me a little more motivation to top the final boulder. I am going for a place on the podium now, but I have to get a little bit better as I need to be top three, but in this round I am not top three, so I have to get better.”

Analise Van Hoang (USA) – women’s Under 16

“Overall my performance was pretty good. I think I made some mistakes and could have done a few of the climbs in less attempts, but other than that, I think it went well. I’m just going to enjoy the final round now and see how it goes.”
