Silver lining 🥈

Despite the rare defeat, Valent and Martin Sinković were still satisfied with their performance and congratulated the other teams, including winners Romania, after their race.

Preparation is key 🚴‍♀️

Сегодня утром выступала в трудности на Чемпионате России. Неожиданно попала в полуфинал, очень рада! Завтра ещё полазаю😉 На второй трассе квалификации поработала хорошо, потерпела, можно и нужно было ещё лучше, но в целом неплохо! А вот на первой трассе были проблемы с расположением, много лишних движений и суеты. Лазать, лазать и ещё раз лазать надо больше!💪🏼 Есть много чего, что хотелось бы написать про Чемпионат России в скорости, но чуть позже, когда эмоции улягутся и можно уже будет сказать по существу... А пока💜 Трудность🧗🏼‍♀️ Полуфинал😍 Чемпионат России 🏆 Готовлюсь!💪🏼 Олимпийские Игры Токио 2020+1 🇯🇵 . 📸 @leozhukovphoto . @lasportiva_russia @camp_russia #campcassin #lasportiva #russia #voronezh #russianchampionship #climbing #speedstar #speed #speedclimbing #leadclimbing #bouldering #combineclimbing #russiangirl🇷🇺 #russianteam #olympicgames #tokyo2020 #tokyo2021 #скалолазаниетюмень
