Joe is a high climber

Joe Czubkowski, a student a Samworth Church Academy, Mansfield, continues to rise in the world of climbing.

Joe has just returned from winning the final round of the Peak Region BMC Youth Climbing Series. He has won all three rounds in the Peak Area, qualifying for the national final after he became the Peak Area Champion in his age group.

Joe’s father, Mr Antek Czubkowski, said: “I was so proud of Joe when he won; his hard work and dedication have delivered these results. Joe will decide where this will lead. It may be to the British team or to concentrate on more outdoor climbing.”

Zak Needham, who trains students to use the climbing wall at Samworth, said Joe helped other students on the climbing wall and high ropes, and remained modest about his achievements.

“He is always willing to help other students on the climbing wall and coaches them in a positive manner, which is great to see,” he said.

“Joe will go from strength to strength in sport climbing and if he keeps going the way he is he’ll be competing at the highest level.”

Joe is at Fontainebleau Bouldering, France, and said: “I am happy that all my training has paid off. I am hoping for a good result in the Grand Final.”

Mr Czubkowski said Joe received a lot of support from Samworth to facilitate Joe’s training.

“Samworth has been supportive, sending personal congratulations from the teachers,” Mr Needham said.

“The Academy try to support Joe in his endeavours, and he has access to the academy climbing wall along with the instructor on two occasions a week where he can carry out training and practice techniques. We are all very proud of him.”
