I have been competing and seriously training for just about 6 years now but climbing for many more, whether it be a fortnightly visit to my local gym or climbing anything in sight. In the past I have tried out 3 times to get into the Australian Youth Climbing team and I have been knocked back every time. These experiences have forced me to grow stronger and more determined to achieve my goals. Each year I have trained harder and climbed harder, making podium for all but one of the 11 national competitions I have participated in, taking out 4 Gold medals, 4 silver medals and 3 bronze medals. The trial process has been tough and at many times I doubted myself, but through the support of my community, family and friends I have only grown stronger as a person and a climber.
I know that this competition will open my eyes to a new world of climbing, it will help me come to the realisation that my strength is not limited to my age or gender. This jump in my life would not be possible without the amazing people around me and I know that I won't be able to make this trip happen by myself. Climbing is my passion in life and this trip will be one of realisation and motivation, pushing me to become the best climber I can be.
If you have any questions or inquiries please feel free to message me on Facebook or email me at lilianascacheri@gmail. All funds raised will go directly to my trip to Austria. I hope to keep you all updated when I get there.
