Sport Climbing IFSC World Championships 2018

Recommended Posts

no surprises in the first event of the championships...all the expected protagonists have gone through to the semifinal round and the main favourites already dominated the field in today's exercise...

and I'm particularly happy for our young big (very big) hope Laura Rogora (class of 2001), who won the Boulder Youth World Title just a couple of weeks ago and today she's been able to qualify for the semis in the Lead event (which is not supposed to be her forte)...

tomorrow, the men's Lead quaifications will be on stage...

great day for Italy, with the expected Ghisolfi second only to the living legend Adam Ondra in his qualification group, but also with 2 more guys making it through to the semis, Francesco Vettorata and Marcello Bombardi...and that was definitely less expected...

 

but the news of the day is the early elimination of the reigning European Champion (and one of the main favourites here, too), the Frenchman Romain Desgranges...

 

not so good looking the local hero, Jakub Schubert, but still safely through...meanwhile the other big names (Ondra, Skofic, Megos above all) were just as good as expected...

 

Tomorrow the 1st Gold Medal will be awarded, the Women's Lead...semifinals at 1 p.m. CET and the big final at 7 p.m. CET...

 

all the action, as usual, live for free on IFSC's official page on Youtube:

 

Semifinals here:

 

and Finals here:

 

p.s. and for those who can watch it, Live TV broadcast on the Austrian public TV channel ORF Sport+ HD (satellite Astra @ 19.2° East, encrypted...you need an ORF/Austriasat subscription to watch this channel)...

Amazing 44 for the 17years old Laura Rogora... let's hope that this will be enough for the final :fingers:

after a slow start now things are getting hot and the big names are putting on quite a good show...Verhoeven and Kim did even make the top of the wall...

 

and Pilz did reach the top, too...

and finally also queen Janja goes top without even struggling...actually, joking with the last (very difficult) passage...

 

looking at what we've seen right now, the final looks very promising and exciting...

because Rogora, Schubert and the 2 Japanese girls were all tied for 7th place (44+ their score) and, since the qualification event was held in 2 separate heats, they couldn't go to countback from the qualification round...

so, the jury decided that 10 was still a reasonable number of climbers (not impacting too much the lenght of the TV broadcast) and enlarged the field of starters of the final, rather than going through a complicated (and unfair) tie-breaker...

That route looks very difficult...

 

Garnbret should have won, what time she wasted. :wall:
