Funds raised will be for costs related to Quincy Vearey's participation in the International Federation of Sport Climbing's World Youth Championships that will be held in Moscow, Russia 8-16 August 2018.
Quincy (16 years old) lives in Mowbray, Cape Town and is being homeschooled (grade 10). He currently competes in the under-17 category in his chosen discipline of Speedclimbing.
Quincy started climbing 20 months ago as a hobby and for physical exercise and relaxation. His other sports interests are surfing and skateboarding. In time he started to show potential in speed climbing, regularly improving on his initial time which culminated in being invited to the national climbing team selections event held at CityRock in Randburg, Johannesburg.
We have just received the good news that Quincy has been included in the Protea Team that will be representing South Africa at international events this year. In May 2018 Quincy won the Men’s Health Magazine’s Speed Challenge that was run for the month of April across all CityRock facilities in Cape Town and Johannesburg. His time of 8.45 seconds secured Quincy the overall winner spot across seven (7) age and ability categories.
Speed climbing has just been included in the line-up for the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan in 2020.
In order represent South Africa at this level, Quincy would require the necessary technical training, international exposure, nutritional support and put in the hard work required to compete with the best in the world. Competing in Russia would be yet another step closer.
