Ogata and Noguchi win The North Face Cup

1. Yoshiyuki Ogata - Akiyo Noguchi
2. Jongwon Chon - Futaba Ito
3. Tomoa Narasaki - Miho Nonaka
Adam Ondra was supposed to participate but he had to cancel.

Recently, Kokoro Fujii and Akiyo Noguchi become Lead National Champions. Akiyo was #2 in Bouldering and #3 in Speed so she seems to be well prepared for getting that Olympic ticket. Her #1 competitor is Miho Nonaka who won Bouldering, #3 in Speed and #7 in Lead.

Kokoro was #2 in Speed and #6 in Bouldering and should be the first contender after Tomoa Narasaki to qualify to Tokyo 2020. Tomoa was #2 in Bouldering and #2 in Lead and won the Speed.

There is a country quota of two male and female but as Japan is the host, only one male and female will qualify by results. The second person will be selected. Ogata tells us that the Japanese World Cup team has been decided but it has not been public yet.

Yudai Ikeda won speed. Tomoa was 4th.

If this would be a combined comp, Kokoro would win in front of Tomoa, 1*2*6 < 2*2*4.
