Get Joey to the world Champs for Climbing

I would love to represent my country, South Africa, as part of the international climbing team. I have been training hard and see it as a great honor to have qualified in 2022 and would like to make this dream a reality in 2023 by attending and competing in World events.

The Team

I have been climbing since I was 11 years old and fell in love with the sport instantly. I grew up on a small holding, working on a vegetable farm, rebuilding old motorbikes, carpentry, and homeschooled which gave me enough freedom to spend most of my time outside and active. Due to an injury in 2019, I had to stop climbing for 2/3 years and continued with surfing and mountain biking during this time (Which I still enjoy doing). On returning to climbing, once healed, I participated in the Provincial and National climbing events and qualified to participate in the international event in 2022. Due to financial reasons and wanting more time to train, I didn't take part. This year,2023, I qualified for the South African team again and I'm ready to put everything in. I have the will, passion, and support of an amazing climbing gym (Valley Crag), coach, JayD Muller, and family. My body is healthy and strong and I would love to give it everything I have. Financially it's quite a lot and even though my family is willing to help and I work part-time and am saving, it won't be enough. Hence reaching out.
