Farnaz Esmaeilzadeh: Professional athlete, Rock climber, World cup competitor, Asian champion, National record holder for women's speed climbing.
I’ve been climbing for 13 years, and have represented Iran in international competitions for the past ten years. I have been among the pioneering women in route setting for national competitions.
I love all types of climbing, and I am proud to be national champion for women’s speed climbing, I've held my title for nine years now. I also hold the Iranian speed climbing record and have it for 7 years now. My other achievements include: Asia Champion, World ranking of 6th (2013 world cup), World ranking of 7th (2015) and first place at the Canadian championships in 2015.
I have been fortunate to have the chance to serve as a public speaker (TEDx, PBC at Amir-Kabir University, etc.), communicate with sports media (climbing magazine, ClimbSkiBoulder magazine, Le Monde, Sportiva, UK climbing, etc.), engage in various activities concerning promoting sports for women and coaching among others.
Also, I enjoy traveling, playing guitar and painting in my free time.
2017 Goals: - Being the first Iranian woman on yet more competitive international podia, - Breaking national and personal records in speed climbing, - Maintain or Improve world ranking among speed climbers, - Improve bouldering and overall performance levels, - Promote sport climbing especially among women, specifically speed climbing in wide range communities, - Lead and inspire others world-wide in matters concerning sports, health and well-being practices.
