I just noticed we had a 21st place finish in bouldering while only top 20 could make it to the semifinals ! what a pity :( I didn't even know we have more than one athlete (beside Alipour of course) here. obviously they paid for their own trips.

I think she's way better than just "top 10"...she should be 7th (the first outside the final on Sunday)...:mumble:

at a first quick look, I'd say she's behind only the Japanese duo Miho Nonaka & Akiyo Noguchi, the Slovenian Janja Garnbret, the Swiss Petra Klinger and the Austrian Jessica Pilz...

but this only if they use the qualification results of every single discipline...if they use the (final) general result, we still have to wait for the bouldering finals, which could change many things (only Nonaka, Garnbret and Kotake can consider themselves sure to make the top 6 in any case)...

 

edit: I also found out that the Korean Sa Sol should be better than Gejo...

maybe I was a bit too optimistic about her chances to make the final...:facepalm:

eh pity really. Result in lead was not that good. She was solid this year, but she had problems at this WC in that discipline.

however, I hope the official website would eventually give us an update about the combined event, because it's impossible to make all calculations by myself...:wall:

Alipour finished first in the qualification. which is a bit surprising to me i was expecting him to be a bit out of shape right after the Asian Games. even though it still means nothing as we know how things work in knockout round. everything is possible. but at least being the top seed gives you a bit of confidence.

 

but I really don't like the format for speed knockout rounds. they have to make it best of 3 or something like that. during the Asian Games (if I'm not wrong ) 3 out of 4 speed finals ended up with false start !! that's no fun for the natural audience .

Again a false start in an important phase of the event... They should modify something, I guess

As expected, with a lot of luck in the final, Alipour won. What disaster for the French guy that don't touch the top :facepalm:

First time this is on Dutch TV (Eurosport) and I'm enjoying it a lot :d 

 

Commentator about the presence of so many Russians in the speed event:

 

"Russians love speed.....

....

I mean in climbing."

 

Spoiler

speed = metamphetamine
