Seo's remarkable stats - best ever in IFSC


Wednesday, 22 September

Being 15-years-old, Chaehyun Seo from Korea did her debut in the Lead World Cup, getting the silver after Janja Garnbret. The following four WCs in 2019, still being 15-years-old, she won and overall she got 480 points in comparison to Janja, as the runner-up, with 352 points. In the same year in 2019, she was #4 in the World Championship and this year, she was #2 in Lead in the Olympics as well as in the Kranj World Cup before winning in Moscow. In other words, her worst result out of eight is being #4, which in the history of IFSC, is the best ever. (c) Dimitris Tosidis/IFSC

Noteworthy is also that she did Bad Girls Club 8c+/9a being 14-years-old with her father, who is a climbing gym owner and have taken her on long rock climbing trips every year, commenting. "She climbs and trains after she gets out of school. Her training time is about 5hours a day when she does. I make her training plans and I make new climbing problems for her on the spray wall daily. I would like her to be a climber that truly joins climbing."

Last year she was #6 in an Ice World Cup after just having practised it for six days.
