“It was amazing to race here again. Even though there were no spectators, the contestants themselves created a great atmosphere here. It was definitely worth the World Cup. The feeling was when the last rock topped and the hall sparked an unspeakable riot. Remember,” he praised Ondra, who is preparing for the Olympic show sport climbing in Tokyo.
“I’m very happy, it’s a lot of satisfaction. I’ve been preparing a lot for this race, and given this great goal this year, I see that The Rock is perhaps the most important discipline. That’s why I spent the whole last year and this spring eliminated my weaknesses in the rock” at scoring Ondra, who awaits at the Olympics a mixture of rocks, climbing fast and hard, that’s great discipline.
“I was really looking forward to the race, the race was already here after two years. It was one of the few races before the Olympics. The next race awaits me at the end of May in Salt Lake City, I hope Ondra.”
The 28-year-old Czech climber defended the last second place in 2019 at The Rock, winning the Cup Ranking in 2010. Last season of the World Championships, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, only one climbing race occurred.
