Jakob Schubert final Olympic preperation

EDITORIAL

15 July 2021

The male Olympic qualification starts on August the 3rd. We reached out to Jakob Schubert, one of the favourites to get a medal. He explains that when it comes to rationale for skipping the last two World Cups, this was mainly because after the successful World Cup in Innsbruck he felt a bit exhausted and had a sore neck. With the first place in the pocket - with all big names competing- Jakob felt confident enough to focus on the recovery towards the Olympic Games. Schubert vlog from Innsbruck.

What is the focus on the last training before the Olympics?
I will have four more lead sessions (around 4-5 hours each) and four more bouldering sessions (around 3-4 hours each) over the eight last climbing days until leaving. Speed is mostly done before bouldering for 1-2 hours. My training is not super different than normal, I try to get strong in all 3 disciplines. This week it’s still hard sessions, next week it’s all about getting a good feeling and feel ready mentally.
