Janja Garnbret sets record in superiority

Janja Garnbret set a new IFSC Boulder WC record by winning all six events in 2019. In total she failed to top only four out of the 18 boulders she tried. Her most extraordinary superiority was shown in the semi in Munich by doing all four problems in just eight tries at the same times her 19 opponents did together just manage to get one top and on an average 1.26 zones!

That's arguable. Anna Stoehr won 7 out of 8 boulder World cups. There might have been tougher competition back than compared to this year. And that's only what I am aware of.  As great as Janja's performance was, there was no Shauna Coxsey, no Akiyo Noguchi, no Miho Nonaka in Münich; and that must be not forget.  Why just can't people avoid this constant (useless - to say the least) comparing based broad conclusion making?

The scoring show that Janja set a new record in superiority in 2019. This is not arguable.

However, as some of the best did not participate in all events in 2019, it might have been relatively easy to get that superiority result.

How the scoring shows that?

Regarding the second part - that's actually what I've been refering to when I've said there might have been tougher competition back in Anna Stoehr days. So eureka.

You are undermining you own statement that it might have been easier for Janja. Because - logicaly - if it's easier to get better result, it's arguable whether it is really superior to someone getting similar result but against tougher competition. And that's my point. Any bells ringing?

P.S. and do not change your wording AGAIN, Geez. You've said "superiority", so stick to that and do not change it for "superior results", because that has different meaning which might suit you more now.

In the history books, as well as the commentators said, what Janja did (no matter how many of the best not participating, this is a new record that never has been achieved before.

Agree there's no need to talk about superiority of Janja over past champions, as well it's wrong to say Janja was superior this season only because some big names were missing... Probably the main reason (beside OG...) they were missing is they have poor chances to win the cup or even a single event against Janja in her current form. And not forget Anna competed only in bouldering, while Janja is top also in lead. Only other female climbers similar to her achievements I can remember is Sandrine Levet, who e.g. won 5 out of 6 bouldering WC events both in 2003 in 2004, while being also among the best in lead.
