Chae-hyun Seo

My name is Chae-hyun, I am a 14 year old middle school student. My mother and father are 
both climbers. Currently I am dedicated to exercise in my father's indoor gym.
My father and I are 5.14 climbers and my mother is 5.13 climber.
My highest grade is 5.14a and the onsite grade is 5.13b. I am doing both sports climbing and ice 
climbing, and this year's goal is to be a national player with my dad at Ice Climbing World Cup.
Above all, I dream of becoming an all around climber. I have the opportunity to climb abroad 
when I am 10 years old, and I was able to improve my skills by experiencing climbing in high 
places in various climbing regions of the world such as Spain, Greece and USA. As a result, I am
able to set my goals to be more specific and to be more active in training.
I have some of the youngest climbing records in my country and I was able to get a lot of 
support from around. I am grateful to all sponsors and I will always do my best to meet these 
expectations.  I am going to try to be a best athlete in the competition, and also aim to become a 5.15 climber 
with a goal of this year's Bad girls club (5.14d) - rifle, USA.

Discipline:Rock climbing
Currently Living: Korea
