Marina Bay Sands Singapore - Opening Celebration!!!

So there I am sitting in a village in rural China minding my own business when my good friend Matt drops me an email... "Duncan, would you like to come race up a massive hotel via a 100m glass layback then party with a whole heap of amzing climbers from around the world...?"... Ummmm, let me check my schedule Matt haha! Thus was my addition to the Commonwealth Team for the Marina Bay Sands - World Championship Climb to the Sands SkyPark!!! I will be competing in a team with Mayan Smith-Gobat, an amazingly talented female climber from New Zealand and the larrakin himself, Tim Emmett from the UK. It's going to be absolutely amazing fun! Can't wait for my flight to Singapore tomorrow!!!
It is being filmed by ESPN (see the trailer on youtube in the links below) and will be a massive media show so I will let you all know when the documentary they are doing about it is out :)

More news and pics of the shenanigans as it unfolds!!!
