Sport Climbing IFSC World Cup 2019

Recommended Posts

2019 Sport Climbing World Cup, Stage #1 (Meiringen, SUI)

 

 

men's Bouldering, climbers qualified to the Final (later tonight, 7 p.m. CET)

:JPN Tomoaki Takata

:KOR Chon Jong Won

:JPN Kokoro Fujii

:JPN Rei Sugimoto

:JPN Tomoa Narasaki

:CZE Adam Ondra

 

:yikes: not that it wasn't expected, but that's still really impressive...

the Asian armada, 4 Japanese guys (and 1 Korean) vs the lone star from Europe, Adam Ondra, is today's Final lineup...

and I fear we will see more of this kind of lineups through the season...

 

 

women's Bouldering, climbers qualified to the Final (later tonight, following the men's Final)

:AUS Oceania MacKenzie

:GBR Shauna Coxsey

:SUI Petra Klinger

:FRA Fanny Gibert

:SLO Janja Garnbret

:JPN Akiyo Noguchi

 

here we have definitely a lot more variety at the start of the final act, with the European girls being the dominant force...

and always nice, we also have someone from the home Nation (former world champion Petra Klinger), which could make the audience a bit more "intense"...

we don't lack a great surprise, too...with the not-yet 17 years young Australian Oceania MacKenzie who had a sensational 1st competition of the year, when in the last season she wasn't even able to make the final in any discipline at the youth worlds...:yikes:

Men's final is well underway by now, two boulders done and we're now into the third boulder. Interesting competition so far :cheer:

Just logged on to say the same thing. Course set has been good. Not particularly exciting Climbing, like what I expect to see during the Olympics, but this has been an interesting competition. Especially since I boulder, some of these are very similar to the hardest problems at my gym.

I’ve never seen a “hand-jam” before. Seems very difficult. None of these have ever been set at my gym while I’ve been there.

You know his style is not clean, not exciting, but it gets the job done and I respect that.

his style might not be perfect, but he's the best climber ever...and his climbs on the most difficult walls out in the mountains are something unbelievable, watching him on a 9b/9c wall is just amazing...

by the way, this 4th and final boulder lookes really a bit too difficult for the girls (apart for the wonderful Janja and Noguchi, of course...but they're not in the same class of the other competitors)...

 

something a little bit easier would have made the competition more exciting also for the places below the top 2...
