International Tree Climbing Championships, St.Louis, Missouri

This past weekend in St. Louis ,Missouri the ISA have held their annual world tree climbing competition. Although it may be a little premature as I've not received 100% confirmation, the grape vine is saying that Jo Hedger of Arborventure Training near Southampton has taken the Womens World title from Chrissy Spence of New Zealand. Congratulations on your achievement Jo.

In the mens arena Beddes Strasser from Germany has added another belt to his collection, which I believe make him 8 times World champ. He was followed closely into 2nd spot by Scott Forrest representing the UK & I chapter. Well done to you also Scotty.

This is a fantastic achievement for both of the UK representatives who I'm sure are buzzing from the experience. I guess both climbers will pitch up at the final event of the UK calender with the Welsh Open TCC held on the last weekend of August in Newport, South Wales.

Best wishes folks
