03interview melanie sandozMélanie didn't seem predestined to climb. However at 11, she went along with a schoolmate and was hooked. It was 'love at first sight' and the young Mélanie signed up in a club. She was so enthusiastic, she even managed to infect her Mum who signed up too ! Today Mélanie is a climber in full bloom. Three years ago, she was shy and unsure of herself, to the point that you would hardly notice her at the bouldering contests ! But in barely two years she has turned into a formidable competitor. French Vice-champion in 2010 and 2011, she has remarkable physical qualities that have earned her a place in the French team. She's hoping to be a 'frequent flyer' in the World Cup finals, with her trademark smile !
