Emma Horan - Open boulder team 

What sparked your interest in climbing and how long have you been climbing?

When I was 7 my big sister was my idol, I wanted to be just like her so when she got a job at the climbing gym she brought me along for a climb. I enjoyed climbing but most of it was just wanting to spend time with her, climbing was our thing, still is a bit even though the whole family does it now. While I love the mental and physical challenges I am presented with in climbing, primarily it will always be about connections; connection with the rock, connection with my body movements, connection with nature and most importantly connection with my family and friends. I have been climbing for 15 years.

Your home gym is?

Canberra Indoor Rock Climbing, Mitchell

What are you proud of achieving so far and what are your goals? 

Making the Aus Open Team 3 years in a row is pretty cool. But I guess what I am most proud of are the juniors I coach, i get a larger sense of achievement when they do well rather then myself. I hope to make a world cup semi final in the next 2 years.

Do you have any idols?

My Sister

Do you have any sponsors?

Evolv, Skylotec and Rocktape

Do you have a fun fact about yourself......
