The both won in their categories (kids under 14) of the competition in difficulty climbing. Iva Vejmolova also got silver cup for the 2nd place in in the speed climbing event as well as the Czech boy Radovan Sifra.
Radovan could have got yet so called "potato medal" for 4th place in difficulty. The 4th was also one of the youngest 5 year old girl Betka Holcova in the Sunday competition Kid´s Rock, where kids compete in many of various climbing disciplines and skills e.g. in bouldering or speed climbing.
In the competition of foreign climbers from many countries of Europe and from Israel the fresh Czech Champion Martin Sifra run out of luck and was 7th in difficulty and 8th in speed. Similarly like Tereza Pivodova – she was 10th in difficulty and the 11th in speed.
Dominika Kovacikova who was 3rd in speed and 12th in difficulty and Jakub Svub - the 4th in difficulty, the 7th in speed - represented Slovakia.
The routes were set on the famous wall where the Rock Masters competition takes place.
Italians were relaxed organizers doing everything for the kids to be happy and for others to enjoy. For example during the winners ceremony the organizers call for all participants to come and every kid got a small gift.
I believe that the Czech representation made a good impression in Arco. The Italian e.g. noticed the phenomenon of 11 year old Adam Ondra, who onsight´s 8a+´s, and even his actual climb on the competition attracted the moderator who pointed at it.
Thanks to Italian´s organizers for excellent weekend we all enjoyed very much.
