AMBASSADORS OF THE EVENT

JERNEJ KRUDER

“The only thing I am good at is climbing, and I want to do it 100-percent. “

Jernej Kruder, the 27-year-old from Celje, met Sports Climbing for the first time in elementary scholl. He fell in love with this sports right away. After getting acquainter with artificial walls in Celje, he quickly switched to boulder and became a World vice-champion in 2014. In the same year, he was recognized as the most successful sport climber in Slovenia by the Olympic Committee of Slovenia.

His sisters Neza and Julija followed his footsteps. The Kruder family has three climbers and they say that you are cool, if you climb. And because The Rock at the Congress Square in the middle of Ljubljana, is also cool, you should come and join us in meeting this new, Olympic sport, where Jernej Kruder will be the ambassador of the event.

A climber from Celje proved his qualities on Majorca, where he climbed a boulder Es Pontas with the difficulty level of 9b, without the protection and only a few meter above sea. Until this date, this is still the most difficult Sports Climb in our country. It took him two weeks and 39 attempts, but he became the second climber in the history to do it. In his words, bouledring is the purest form of climbing.

JANJA GARNBRET

“I am most proud of the fact that, despite all my success, I have remained Janja, as my friends have known me since,”

three times world champion Janja Garnbret repeats, 19-year-old and member of the Šaleški AO. She remains a grounded, sober, simple and social girl, who endlessly enjoys in what she does best, that is, in sports climbing.

She did not regret that she did not have youth like her peers and that she had to omit many fun and social events at the expense of sports. She has always felt best in the wall, outside or inside. Janja is disciplined, serious, working, consistent.

She was always a step or two in front of her competitors, she was always a year or two ahead of time. In 2016, when she was only 17 years old in Paris, she became a world champion in lead climbing, after that she won two small crystal globes before she even crossed the threshold of teenage girls.

THE WALL

The idea to construct a climbing wall that will host top climbers from all around the world has arisen through a group of individuals and experts involved in organizing top level sports climbing events for many years now. The design of the wall configuration has also taken into account the expert opinion of the two Slovenian sports climbing selectors.

The modular climbing wall is easy to erect in one single afternoon; while the entire construction together with the safety mats is transported from one place to another within the shortest possible time period. The object is designed and constructed exclusively for big international events. Coated with a special mixture to ensure good gripping conditions for climbing shoes, and furnished with wooden formations, plastic volumes and holds of versatile shapes, it is going to pose a major challenge to all the participating athletes, particularly those competing in the semi-finals and then onto the finals.
