Northern Illawarra climber Leah Jeffries has won her way through to the national team to represent Australia at the World Championships in Italy later this year.
Leah lined up alongside 250 climbers from all over the country at the Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym for the National Youth Sport Climbing Championships.
She’s finished 2nd in Lead, 3rd in Boulder and 3rd in Speed- enough to earn her a place in the Australian team heading to Arco in Italy in August.
The sport has recently been included in the Olympics, and will make its debut in Tokyo in 2020- with climbers having to excel in all three disciplines.
Sixteen year old Leah is no stranger to international competition, having made the Australian team in 2018.
