Bomber Athlete - Riley Galloway
Hi, I’m Riley and I started climbing when I was around 8 years old. I’ve been to 13 provincial, 10 national, 1 Pan American, and 1 youth world competitions. Before I started climbing I was a competitive gymnast. Between the ages of 8 and 11 I was doing competitive gymnastics and climbing.
All of the training began to be too much and I had to pick one of the two. Obviously I ended up choosing climbing and I couldn't be happier!
I am currently training in Hamilton with Team Gravity and I train 9 hours a week with them. Outside of team training, I train between 3-7 hours with my family or on my own. Some of my goals for my competition season include making it back to the IFSC stage this year at Youth World Championships. Also in the next few years I hope to make it to the World Cup Circuit.
Since I climb between 4-6 days a week my skin takes a beating. I use Bomber after every session and before bed to keep my skin healthy so I can train more often.
