Margo Hayes reached hold 34+ out of 41 on Qualification Route 2. For a while she was in first place overll and now she’s been bumped to 2nd by teammate Claire Buhrfeind who only got to hold 31+ on QR2 but who made it the highpoint (hold 27+) on QR1. Margo currently has highpoint on QR2 with about 1/2 of her category still to climb. Margo was ranked in a tie for 3rd after QR1 yesterday. We will see where she ends up after the category has climbed but so far she has put on a spectacular performance. Great job Margo!
Fellow Team USA climber Josh Levin put on a fantastic performance as well and got close to highpoint on his 2nd quali route. Here are some photos from the IFSC Youth World Championship Singapore facebook page:
And now this is happening…
More photos and updates tomorrow. Great job Margo and great job Team USA!
