Sabina van Essen is 16 years old and perhaps the greatest climbing talent in the Netherlands. She’s so good that she’s competing in the European Championship this week and is also known as Spiderwoman.
Sabina started climbing when she was 10 years old and she immediately loved the sport. She now trains six times a week to become the very best.
Sabina participates in the ‘lead’ section. That means you have to climb five meters up, without a rope. And that looks pretty impressive.
Climbing was an Olympic sport for the first time in 2021. Sabina already dreams of the Olympic Games in 2024.
