„ The most beautiful about climbing is the feeling when you reach the top. Whether at a comp, in training, on rock or plastic, no matter if bouldering or lead climbing- the thought of being at the very top, having accomplished something you had to work for, is indescribable. “

about Mantle

„ Whoever claims that chalk equals chalk, hasn't yet tried Mantle chalk. The perfect consistency doesn't leave any fingers wet and provides perfect conditions. It is cool that Mantle is already established in Austria as well. “

Questions to Laura

What do you usually do in your spare time?

If I am not climbing in my spare time, I enjoy being outside in the nature and trying other sports (preferably with my dog and family). I also like cooking and taking photos.

Give us a fun fact about you or a remarkable experience in your climbing career.

At my first Speed Comp which was about 2 years ago I participated just for fun really and I climbed the speed route for the first time. So I thought that I hadn't made it to the next round but I didn't know that there were such few athletes participating that everyone had made it to the next round. Suddenly I was called to the start so I climbed with jeans and a scarf on without having warmed up and managed to achieve my new personal record at that time- less than 20 seconds :D

What are your long term and/or short term goals?

For this season my goal is to qualify for the World Championship in Innsbruck. I also want to use my last year in the youth category and participate at as many international youth comps as possible. Longterm, Olympia would be a big dream of mine. The most important thing to me is that I will never lose the joy of climbing, though.
