The OCR World Championships is known for innovative obstacles, including its rope obstacles. For 2021, the OCRWC is excited to announce it has partnered with US-made, woman-owned GORILLA Ropes. All on-course climbing ropes will be GORILLA Ropes, and GORILLA Ropes products are available for purchase on the OCRWC website for athletes to use in their training.
“Our competitors are some of the best athletes in the world and deserve to compete on the best obstacles in the sport,” Adrian Bijanada, CEO & Founder of the OCRWC, said. “We are thrilled to introduce them to GORILLA Ropes which will help create another world-class OCRWC course.”
“It just makes sense! Every racer knows that being able to navigate rope obstacles is critical in performing well at the OCRWC,” Sarah Pozdol, GORILLA Ropes founder, said. “GORILLA Ropes are high quality US-assembled training solutions for the home, gym or on the go so no matter where you are, we’re here to get you race ready.”
GORILLA Ropes come in two different materials and a variety of lengths, including the 7-foot “Short Tail,” a training tool designed to help athletes focus on the specific movements required to master rope climbing.
