I am back from another World Cup, this time it was held in Canada. I have won 5 out of 6 World Cups this season.... which sounds crazy and it feels crazy as well!! I cannot believe that this season is going so well for me, but I am enjoying every comp and I am happy each time I am able to climb in the final round again.
The final did not start out perfectly for me, as my feet kept slipping on the first three problems, which cost me quite a few attempts. Therefore I was very excited about the last problem, because it looked the hardest and I was ready to fight hard. And that is exactly what I did. For me it was difficult to get to the bonus hold, although this move looked easy when Alex and Akyio did it in their tries. When I had it in my hands on my third trie I just did not want to let go anymore. The incredibly loud Canadian crowd was right behind me, when I leapt to a crimp from an undercling, which worked out perfectly and also the top move was possible for me. I was really happy when I stuck the top hold, because I knew that the problem I just did was definitely a hard one. I had to fight hard for it and in the end nobody else did it, which meant that I had won my fifth world cup this season!! To make it even better I won alongside with Kilian, which is always very special. Kilian completed three problems and was ahead of Jorg Verhoeven and Jakob Schubert- a real "Tivolian" podium in the men's field!
What I realized the next day was that with this victory in Canada I had already secured the overall world cup victory 2013- too good to be true ;) ! Next stop: Coloradbro.
