vit margot heitz interviewMargot has just turned senior at competition level, but she is the most experienced of the speed climbers, the Mum of the group if you like ! Margot started climbing when she was very small, with her family on the Casteljau site in the Ardèche. But at the time she was more into leotards and asymetric bars than chalk bags, shoes and harnasses. « I think I finally caught the climbing bug during my first competitions, as a first-year Youth B. After many years of gym, climbing was an excellent new departure as the two sports have many points in common : strength, precision, balance, risk-taking... but climbing brought me somthing else : a kind of escape ! With speed climbing I discovered the heady feeling of flying from handhold to handhold and defying the laws of gravity ». Although she's very committed, Margot does not neglect her studies, in an area where her trademark ambition is also present : « Aside from training, I spend my time at University, where I'm studying law to become a police captain. » In what little free time she has, Margot enjoys student life, between shopping, outings with friends and downtime with her family .
