La Sportvia Legends Only

This Saturday the La Sportvia Legends Only event will take place at Klättercentret in Stockholm! It is an international invitational competition and the contestants are the best of the best - Adam Ondra, Jakob Schubert, Sean McColl, Dmitry Sharafutdinov and Guillaume Glarion Mondet. I definitely think anyone who is in town should check it out. I am certain it is going to be a really cool event and a spectacular show!

No Kranj WC this year either...

I had really been looking forward to the last World Cup in Kranj, Slovenia. The wall in Kranj is definitely one of my favorites and it was also the final World Cup of the year. In addition, the flu prevented me from going last year so therefore I was even more eager going there this time. After my return from the US I had been able to train pretty well and I was feeling fine. Until one week before departure... November illness struck and I got a bad cold and a fever. Despite my massive amount of vitamin C boosts it lasted all week and I had to stay at home this year again.

So instead of competing in Kranj, I was at home trying to get rid of the stupid illness and occupying myself with baking - a lot. Cookies, cupcakes, muffins and saffron buns..! In retrospect, I can definitely say that not going was the right decision. Nevertheless it is still very frustrating, especially since I felt all better again on Tuesday. But, there is always next year - third time's the charm, right?
