Alex Puccio’s 9th National Championship

Alex Puccio, writing about her mindset prior to winning her 9th National Championship in bouldering:

I always feel more pressure for ABS Nationals than any other Pro competition in the country.  I think most of it is due to the fact that I have been National Champion for many years and therefore many people expect me to do well. Most people think that the longer you do competitions and do well at them that the easier it gets mentally, but for me it actually gets harder. I know a lot of top athletes that share the same feelings as well. Because I have achieved so much, I have so much more to lose. It feels as if it would be such a big deal to everyone around me if I were unable to defend my title. And it’s bound to happen at some point!

Interview With ABS Nationals Winner Mohammad Jafari

Nice interview with surprise ABS Nationals winner Mohammad Jafari Mahmodabadi by his home gym in the U.S., Earth Treks Climbing in Golden, CO:

For me, winning championships comes second. The thing that is most important to me is being able to travel and build relationships with climbers and people from all over the world.

Lost in all the controversy over the scoring system was the great performance turned in by Mohammad.  From the interview it sounds like he will be in the U.S. for a few years, so I think we can look forward to seeing him compete again.
