Friday Feat: Staying Balanced Amid Coronavirus



Competition climber Alejandra Contreras demonstrates how she keeps her bearings during a pandemic, with her dog, no less. Contreras, from Santiago, Chile, is a Youth and Open National Champion. She recently placed second at the 2020 Pan-American Championships, one spot shy of the coveted Tokyo Olympic Games invitation. Despite not getting the Olympic ticket, she still managed set Chile’s new national speed record, with the time 8:52. At just 19-years-old, she will have many more Olympic opportunities in her future. “I’m beyond thankful and I promise to be better for the future,” she said on Instagram following the event. Since returning home, she’s been practicing social distancing while finding safe ways to train and get outside.
