Jan Štípek, Rock Empire athlet

Honza is our youngest ambassador. A talented climber from Ústí nad Labem is a part of the Rock Empire team since the beginning of his climbing career. Honza is already collecting medals where he can and we are yet to hear a lot about him ...

What Honza revealed about himself:

I got into climbing by coincidence, just for fun me and my dad and aunt went to Hudy to climb the climbing wall in Vaňov. I really liked it and so my parents found out that there were children's climbing lessons on the climbing wall. It all started there. On the wall, I was lucky enough to meet my idol Editka Vopatová, who trains me today. I started going to climbing meets and outdoor rocks. We train on the wall with Edita or my parents, alternating 4 to 5 times a week. On weekends we go to races or, when the weather is nice, to the rocks with ,,our" group. I enjoy it very much. Thanks to climbing, I have a lot of great friends from different cities throughout our country.

I am a fourth grade student at the Hluboká Elementary School in Neštěmice. I represent the school in a relay run and attend a floorball club. Apart from climbing and school, I really enjoy skiing, snowboarding, longboarding, rollerblading, cycling and running. Sometimes I read a nice book. And why Rock Empire, there is a good group that supports and believes in me and I really like their harnesses from the Slight series.
