01interview melissa leneveThings happened very quickly for Melissa. Four years after she put on her first pair of climbing shoes, she was picked for the French squad. « I'd fancied climbing for ages, it was simmering inside of me, but I couldn't find a structure ». Last year, Melissa was the spearhead of the French team, pocketing 5 medals during the 2011 Bouldering world cup, finishing 4th in the overall rankings. It's a fascinating rise which holds a lot of promise for Bercy !
Today Melissa trains at the French centre of excellence Aix en Provence. It's an enviable situation, since she can juggle her studies (History), her sporting career and of course her passion, that she indulges both indoors and on rockfaces the world over.
