Kiah Martin, Jessica Knott, Gerard Reynolds and Grant Cody are the confirmed Australian entrants in the Asia-Pacific Regional Tree Climbing Competitions scheduled for Sunday 21 March 2010.
New Zealand National TCC coordinator, Marlies Laser says the caliber of climbers in the 2010 Asia-Pacific TCC will make this one of the most exciting Southern Hemisphere tree climbing events… ever!We are all well aware of our own climbers ability but the Aussies look pretty good on paper. Check out the stats below.
Kiah Martin was Australian Women's TCC champion eight times running from 1999 to 2006 and world champion in 2003 - she was also womens champion alongside Tom Greenwood on a number of occasions (Tom is the official ISA ITCC adjudicator in the footock world record attempt held in conjunction with the Asia-Pacific TCC).
Jessica Knott is the 2008 and 2009 Australian Womens TCC Champion.
Gerard Reynolds is two-time Asia-Pacific TCC Champion and 2009 ITCC competitor and Grant Cody is two-time Australian Men's TCC Champion and 2009 ITCC competitor.
Not bad for a bunch of Aussies!
Marlies is right - this will be a very exciting tree climbing event.
