Canadian Alannah Yip is Going to the Olympics
After an intense lead round, the B.C. climber has secured her spot at the Olympics
Alannah Yip has secured her spot at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after an in intense Pan-American Games. She placed first, followed by Alejandra Contreras and third was Lauren Bair. Full results here.
She’ll be joining Sean McColl in representing Canada at the games. Becca Frangos climbed well in finals, finishing fifth, and was one of five Canadian at the event, along with Yip, Jason Holowach, Allison Vest and Brennan Doyle.
Yip didn’t know she was going to the Olympics until Frangos told her back on the ground. It led to an emotional moment at Sender One and to those watching on livestream. More to come. Congrats Alannah!
