Ms. Namita Nayyar: Who has been your greatest influence and motivator in your success in the field of your career in competitive bouldering?
Ms. Anna Stöhr: There are a few people who influenced me a lot. From the very start it was my coach and mentor Rupi Messner. My parents had a great influence because they actually did not get too involved, which was important for me. From the beginning, I’ve climbed for myself. And last but not least my partner Kilian Fischhuber has a big influence on me, his relaxed and fun attitude made training easy and always showed me that there are so many other beautiful things in life.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What according to you are the Top 3 Fitness Tips for Rock Climbing?
Ms. Anna Stöhr: Pull ups, push ups, sit ups.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: How did you feel when you achieved your highest grade on natural rock, with the ascent of The Riverbed, 8B (V13), which represents the second female ascent of an 8B boulder in history?
Ms. Anna Stöhr: As I said achieving something always feels great!
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have won gold at the 2007 and 2011 IFSC World Championships, placed first at the 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Overall World Cups, and won gold at 2010 and 2013 European Championships. Tell us about the most memorable experience that you’ve had across all these Championships?
Ms. Anna Stöhr: There are so many things that I will remember. In 2007 I was a rookie, then I became a favorite and I always had to deal with this and adapt to the different situations. Maybe the most memorable achievement was in 2013 when my partner Kilian and I both won the European Championship. That was very special to me.
