By the way, can someone explain me this combined format (for the final at least)? 

 

I just saw speed, and I understand how the rankings were made. But will we have a 'full' boulder competition now with 6 athletes doing 4 boulders, so potentially 24x4 minutes and then a 6xlead competition?

 

Yes, lead and boulder competitions will be the same as a normal lead and boulder competitions. only in speed they make it a bit shorter.

yes, the combined event final is made with a full speed, a full boulder and a ful lead competition between the involved climbers...

and the score is determined by taking the final position of any athlete in each section and multiplying te speed points*the boulder points*the lead points (and if 2 climbers are tied in 1 section, their score is the average of their 2 positions...for instance, if 2  climbers finish the boulder section tied for 3rd place, their score will be 3.5 points)...

he was 37th in the Lead event, 65th in the Speed event and didn't start in Bouldering...

I guess he isn't anymore the all-rounder he once was...

nowadays the speed event has so many pure specialists that's very difficult for guys good but not "super-good" to make the highest part of the ranking...and if you're not one of the top 5/10 athletes in both lead and boulder, then it gets really complcated to excel in this new combined format (which is still too unbalanced towards those who can win in the 2 most classic disciplines)...
