Gabriele Moroni: interview after historic gold in Japan Boulder World Cup

For a second last Sunday time stood still. For a brief moment, up there, matched to the top and having finally nailed his yearned-for victory, he closed his eyes and savoured that magical moment, relishing in a mix of joy and disbelief. Then he jumped back down onto the mattress and returned to reality as the raucous audience got to its feet and applauded not only a deserved victory, but also an athlete who for over 17 years had always competed in Boulder World Cups at the top, but never at the absolute apex. This was undoubtedly his moment, the instant that gave him “one of the most exciting moments of my life.” So here it is, that sweet first victory of a Boulder World Cup stage seen through the eyes of Gabriele Moroni.
