Scottish Youth Gunning for Success in World Cup



This week will see Valence in France host the 2009 Youth World Cup. The top junior climbers from all over the globe will be competing against each other in the difficulty (lead climbing) and Speed Climbing events. The competition is spread over 4 action packed days beginning on Thursday the 27th.

There will be 5 young Scottish climbers representing the British Junior Team at this event, with Jonathan Stocking, Nat Berry, Paul Williamson, Robert MacKenzie and Robbie Phillips. Nat and Jonnie have already managed to achieve 4th place finishes in previous World cups and are in great shape to improve on these results this year. Robert, Robbie and Paul are all in great shape and are tipped to make an impact in the event too.

Everyone at EICA: Ratho would like to wish them the best of luck.
