With the Olympics opening Friday, football/soccer on Wednesday, the sports freak in me is more than a little excited. While rock climbing isn't one of the 26 sports at the London games it is possibly the fav sport of the friend who sent me this awesome vid. The video features the 19 year old Sasha DiGiulian, all 5' 2" of her.

"On October 15th 2011, adidas team athlete, Sasha DiGiulian became the first American women to climb the grade 9a (5.14d) with her historic ascent of "Pure Imagination" in Kentucky's Red River Gorge. Keith Ladzinski and Andy Mann (Three Strings Media) were there to capture her efforts and tell her story."
For more about Sasha read The Washington Post article "Rock climber Sasha DiGiulian, 19, is making her way to the top." The article also includes an awesome photo gallery.
