Kiwis can climb trees! The aptly named Scott Forrest of Kawerau is the new men’s world champion tree climber – at the weekend in Wisconsin regaining the title he won last year and which he also won in 2011.
Nicky Ward Allan of Eltham, who was also defending a world title from last year, was third in the women’s climb-off, while she and James Kilpatrick of Tauranga won the teams title. The 2014 women’s world champion is Josephine Hedger of the British Isles (the UK and Ireland are one “chapter”), who has previously held the title in 2008 and 2010.
