Hong Kong Bouldering Championships 2018 was held last weekend at the Piazza in Kowloon Park. Five competitors from ISM joined this annual event together with 188 climbers from the Philippines, Macau, Thailand and Hong Kong. Our climbers did very well despite the cold weather and being in their first international competition. Gabie Ong on her 2nd international competition made it into the final round. Congratulations! Gabie O 6th Place Girls Juniors, Patrick P 7th Place Boys Juniors, Avery K 8th Place Girls Juniors, Li Ling W 9th Place Girls Juniors, Ananda A 9th Place Girls Youth.
