ITCC 2016 San Antonio, Texas

The ITCC world title for me has been an ultimate goal for a while now. The challenge is not just a physical but mentally tough one.  Just knowing that the masters challenge finals climb was over for me was a relief in itself, but knowing that this time I had represented my family, my friends and fellow competitors well by performing as they knew I could, that was the best feeling for me.  I never thought about winning, in the beginning I was focused and went about my business and in the end, it was just about climbing and having some fun.
