Ed Hamer has achieved a fantastic 2nd place in the final of the World Youth Championships in Imst, Austria.

The Championships started really well with 3 Team GB members qualifying for the Semi-Finals. The results of the qualification rounds were as follows: 

Molly Thompson-Smith - 11th
Tara Hayes - 36th
Ed Hamer - 22nd
Buster Martin - 26th
Luke Tilly - 35th 
Kitty Wallace - did not climb.

The first 26 in each category qualified for the semis. Hence Molly, Ed and Buster all went through; with Molly and Ed eventually making it through to the finals. Buster was placed 25th.

In the finals Molly achieved a great 8th place.

In the finals Ed was in first place right up to the final climber and then he was pipped into a brilliant 2nd place for his first ever podium place.  This is the highest place achieved by a Brit in a World Championship event since Simon Nadin won the first ever climbing World Championship event held back in 1989, so well done Ed!

The team are supported by the BMC and Mountain Hardwear. For more information on the team click here.
