Oscar Preston second at The Little Flash youth competition, in Norwich.
Oscar Preston – After warming up I was feeling good and had already walked around and read my routes. These looked good and I felt confident so I started on the easier climbs before moving onto the hard climbs. Leaving the medium ones until last. I had done all 20 climbs in 45 minutes and got 175/200 points putting me into the finals.
Final involved isolation and the 1st problem was made up of volumes which I topped, the 2nd was an arête style bloc which I topped. The 3rd problem I got half way up and the 4th I couldn’t get reach around a volume to reach a hold. I ended up 2nd overall in group C (I am usually in group D) well happy with this result

So why has Oscar done so well and why is he improving all of the time. Well, basically Oscar shows true dedication to following his coached training plans, is totally motivated and puts in the maximum effort. The coached training plans that he follows are written specifically for Oscar by our Head Coach, Paul Jackson following monthly 1:1 coaching sessions. This way we can look at where Oscar needs to improve and write that into a plan that meets this needs and without injury.
