Yuval Shmela and Alex Haznov qualified for the finals of the European Climbing Championships. The two climbers are a step away from getting the coveted ticket to the Tokyo Olympics and they will compete on Saturday for both the best climbers on the continent and each other, as there is only one ticket left for the games, which will be awarded only to the climber who wins the championship.
Shamla and Haznov competed today in the combined qualifiers, the “great battle” of the climbing world, speed climbing (speed) in the morning, bouldering at noon and transport in the evening. After a mediocre opening for the two Israeli competitors, Shamla, who finished 20th in speed and only 11th in bouldering, was very far from the chance to finish the qualifiers between the top eight, but gave a heroic display in the lead while taking first place in the end, which gave him the Fourth place in the overall summary.
Haznov climbed to the bouldering end with an amazing display of 4 tops (track finishes) and first place in the end, which raised him to fourth place in the overall weighting. In the lead, Alex finished in 16th place overall, which put him in eighth place and on the verge of the final. The tension continued until the end of the lead and after a number of his opponents fell early on the track his place in the final was confirmed.
Shamla concluded: “Even in moments when you feel you are down and the chances are low it is important to believe and acknowledge your true abilities. I knew I could fix in the lead and I gave it my all. I am as happy right now as I have been in my life.” Haznov said with the announcement of his qualification for the final: “This competition is a roller coaster. I was so successful in bouldering and just could not stay focused in the lead. In the end all the stars got along and tomorrow a new day where I will give it my all again.”
