04interview thomas caleyron

Thomas is the strong & silent type in the French bouldering team. This strapping guy, who is 'zen attitude' personified, is on the up. Finalist in 2 World Cups in 2011, he trains each season with one aim in mind : an international medal (or more). « That's what I like about competitions : setting challenges, pushing my limits and pulling it all together at a given moment to achieve them. ». Thomas started climbing in 1997, through the interschools circuit. « I have to admit, at the start I loved bouldering because the landing mats were reassuring, he jokes. Now, I just love every aspect : from the variety of movement and effort, to the rivarly and great atmosphere between climbers. »
