A huge round of applause to our very own Sammy Oakes for achieving yet another key position in a major climbing competition! Is there no stopping this machine!? Sammy’s recent adventure at the British Lead Climbing Championships, hosted by Awesome Walls: Sheffield, saw Sammy standing in at 3rd place on the final podium! Giving him yet another top position and securing his name as one of the best climbers in the country. As always, humble ol’ Sammy doesn’t see this as a big deal, but come on, 3rd best lead climber in the UK, to us that’s just amazing!
If this wasn’t enough, Sammy also walked away with other major title last month by winning the Scottish Youth Championships along with competing and doing tremendously well in the IFSC Climbing World Cup. Sammy came 27th in the men’s speed climbing competition and came in at 43rd in the men’s lead climbing competition (this is in the WORLD you must remember). What an incredible achievement for a young man of 17 (just turned), to be competing against some of the BEST climbers in the world, and to walk away with a result like that, well done Sammy, we applaud you.
As always Sammy, we watch in wonder as you continue to amaze us with your mad climbing skills and pleasant nature, and await to see what spectacular feat you achieve next. If you’d like to watch and follow Sammy Oakes on his rise to the top then follow his Facebook page here >Follow Sammy Oakes<
