Bio

I started climbing when I was 4 years old and one of the things I enjoyed most back then was making huge swings. When my parents had climbed an overhanging route it was my turn to put on my little harness and enjoy the swinging and hanging upside down. I could go on with that for hours.
When I was 11 years old, I did my first national youth competitions and gradually began training more seriously. In 2010 I did my first international youth competitions and 2 years later I also started competing in the adult’s circuit where I made good progress and finally reached the highest level.
Next to competition climbing, I also spend time on rock to push my limits there as well.

Besides climbing I like being in nature, chatting with people, taking photos, learning other languages, traveling, camping free, reading books and articles, playing with little children and creating things with my hands.
