JAKOB SCHUBERT Born in Innsbruck, where he lives. At age 12, he joined Reini Scherer’s training group. He soon played less soccer and trained seriously. It paid off: Jakob has won countless competitions and several world championship medals. What is often overlooked is that Jakob is Austria’s most accomplished sport climber, with ascents up to 9b (Fight or Flight, Oliana, and Planta de Shiva, Andalusia).
