Listen to the interview with Rachel Condos-Fields and Nana Owusu-Afriyie here. Sarah had an outstanding World Cup series for 2023 with silver medals in the AL2 category in Salt Lake City, Innsbruck and Villars, but Sarah's focus is on continually pushing the boundaries of what is possible in sport climbing - 'I know what I want to improve and I'll work as hard as I can to make that happen'.

Sarah mentions in her interview how she first discovered climbing through Adaptive Climbing Victoria and guarantees that there is a way for everyone to make it up a climbing wall. Similar organisations such as Able Climbing NSW exist in other states to make it possible for everyone to experience the joy of climbing so don't hesitate to reach out and give our sport a go!
