Two Eindhoven residents will participate in the Boulder World Cup in Munich, Germany, next week. Timo Tak and Vera Zijlstra are going to show their climbing skills there. Together with Jorg Verhoeven and Nicky de Leeuw they will defend the Dutch honour.
Timo Tak was second this year in the national Boulder championships and Vera Zijlstra has already won six national Boulder titles.
Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses. Participants choose short, but tough, routes on an artificial climbing wall, that is a few metres high. There are only a few mats on the floor, to prevent injuries from falls.
The World Cup starts next Thursday and the finals are on Saturday.
