SUSS Outdoor Adventure (ODA) Member Took 9th Position in a Regional Bouldering Competition

Ho Yi En Jeremiah, SUSS Year 2 Social Work undergraduate and a member of the SUSS Outdoor Adventure Interest Group (ODA IG), recently showcased his tenacity at SMU Gravical Competition, an annual regional bouldering competition that attracts hundreds of participants. Despite only embracing world of climbing three years ago, Jeremiah's performance was nothing short of remarkable, as he attained 9th place in the finals, a commendable feat among the 200-strong field of competitors.

In a post-event reflection, Jeremiah’s greatest takeaway would be the significance of maintaining focus amid intense pressure. "It's easy to get caught up in how others are performing and lose sight of your own goals," he explained. "Staying calm and centered allowed me to give my best performance, regardless of external factors."
