MEET OUR ATHLETES
Age 13 | Canadian Youth B
Team Aspire | Milton, ON
You’ll know her by her braids, IMPACT Climbing is proud to sponsor Team Aspire’s, Evangelina Briggs. Evangelina, 13, born in Sheffield, England moved to Canada at one year old and showed an interest in climbing not long after. Evangelina's parents, Stephen and Andrea describe her first experience as every parent’s worst nightmare. While on a family camping trip, they came to find that their five-year-old daughter was missing. Thankfully, the search for Evangelina did not take long, however, they did find her in a peculiar spot, she was soloing up the side of a small cliff near their campsite. Evangelina kept shouting ‘Again, again!” And this was just the beginning of her climbing adventures.
With a climbing instructor as a father, Evangelina has rock climbing in her blood. With her natural-born ability, incredible drive and love of heights, Evangelina has everything you need to be a champion, which is why she is no stranger to the podium. As a member of the Youth C division, Evangelina claimed the national title at the Canadian Youth Boulder Nationals as well as second place at USA Climbing’s Youth Bouldering Nationals and Tour de Bloc Open Championship to name a few.
Her most recent accomplishment, Evangelina was named OCF Champion and won Eastern Bouldering Title for Youth B-Girls! She also made finals in her first year of B at USA Nationals. We are so proud. We are so proud to sponsor Evangelina and wish her all the best in her 2020 endeavors! We know you will do amazing things!
