A talk about Sagis way into climbing and coaching, climbing in Israel and more

Sagi Damti at the BIN WEG BOULDERN podcast

Sagi Damti is part of the new DAV competition climbing coaching team, that was presented at the beginning of the new season 2022. Head of the team is Ingo Filzwieser and every discipline has his own coach, too. Sagi is responsible for the bouldering athletes.

In my interview with Sagi we look back at his coaching career in Israel and we talk about his new job in Germany. You will hear:

  • How he got into climbing (in a pretty unconventional way)
  • How he – a former teacher – started coaching for climbing
  • What his approach on coaching looks like
  • You will learn about the Israeli climbing scene
  • And what is was like, to build up the Israeli climbing team

This is part one of our interview, part two will follow!
