My best moment of 2019 was qualifying for The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 🤍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Olympics for me have always been a life goal. When I started climbing and for most of my career, The Olympics weren’t even a possibility. At the end of 2016, that changed and I knew 2020 would be the first time Sport Climbing would be in The Olympic Program; I finally had my chance! Fast forward 3 years and here we are today, it’s happening and I couldn’t be happier! 🙏🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My words to you: “enjoy the process” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @adidasterrex | @scarpana | @joerockheads | @verticalartclimbing | @flashedclimbing | @perfect_descent | @CANFund | @visaca #verticalart #CANFund #TeamVisa #climbing #train #canada #instagood #picoftheday #photooftheday #athlete #igers #amazing #sports #fitspo #gymlife #power #fitfam #adventure #fitness #work #workhard #workout #strength #follow #ninja #gym #fun #olympics
