The Toronto World Cup is the result of countless people’s dedication and hardwork, but one of the leading people who makes it happen is Luigi Montilla.
This year will be the third year the IFSC World Cup circuit will be coming to Toronto. After 2013 wrapped up, Montilla said, “I have invested two years of my life into this project… I am just happy it all went smoothly.” When asked for his personal highlights of the weekend, Montilla answered, “Definitely when the doors opened to the first spectators in the morning and then when the very first climber stepped onto the wall.”
Last week, the Canadian National Championships took place in Saanich, B.C and the winners went on to be part of the 2015 Canadian team who will be competing at the Toronto World Cup. See here for results.
