Right after the award ceremony in Laval we spoke with Udo Neumann. The German coach shared his thoughts on why Jan Hojer and Akiyo Noguchi are the 2014 Overall Champions and talked about route setting, the performance of the German Team and the challenges the IFSC faces.
In case you don’t know… Udo Neumann is the creative mind behind the World Cup Reports. He’s also the author of books such as Performance Rock Climbing and The Art and Science of Bouldering. And, of course, since 2009 he’s the coach of the German Bouldering Team.
It’s always a pleasure to talk to him, few people on this planet know so much about bouldering as he does. Thanks a lot for the interview Udo!
