Who do you enjoy climbing with?
Most of the time I’m training with my brother, so that’s why he is one of the important persons in climbing for me.
The best memory you have about climbing?
When I began climbing I learned very fast and I started to make competition. After climbing one month I won the first event, but no one expected it, so I was really happy.
And the worst?
I think the season of 2010 has been my worst experience I had; at the beginning I just had no luck, at school it wasn’t running perfectly and I really wanted to be in front, after it everything was perfect and I started to feel good again.
What do you like to do when you’re back home after climbing?
I love to go outside relaxed, sometimes I also go running immediately or I just sit down somewhere and listen to music with new plans in my head.
What’s your involvement with the Millet design center?
At the time I’m a good competition climber and I always try to climb as good as possible so that the brand is presented.
How do you feel climbing will evolve in the next years?
I think it’s on the best way to the top, especially after speed climbing gets Olympic, and climbing will be more and more known by people. The way for the other disciplines will take longer, I hope not too long, pre-set the associations do the right things to take the sport in good light. So the way is still open, in any case, I believe in the fact that it’s a sport with big future.
