NATHANIEL COLEMAN: I am Nathaniel Coleman. I'm 24, and I live in Salt Lake City. I started climbing when I was nine, and I qualified for the Olympics in Toulouse, France in November 2019. As soon as it was announced, I started thinking, well, I'm gonna try for this. Like, I don't know how realistic it is, but I'll do my best, and, over the course of the next two or three years of trying to qualify, it kind of became more and more possible in my mind. And so, when it actually happened in France, it made me believe in myself more, I guess, going forward.
