Sharma competes at La Sportiva Legends in Stockholm

In 1996, being 15 years old, Chris Sharma was #2 in the World Lead Championship and the next year he won his first World Cup he entered. In 2001, he won the Bouldering WC in Munich.

During the La Sportiva Legends in Stockholm 24/11, Sharma will compete against some of the very boulderers in the world; Jernej Kruder, Jongwon Chon, Alex Megos, Rei Sugimoto and Alexey Rubtsov. If he not ends dead last, it must be considered sensational. What if this is a test for going for the Olympics 2020? IFSC will through a Tripartite Commission invite one male and female that have not made it through the qualification competitions.

Jens, please stop using the phrase "dead last". Just "last" is enough. Especially, since you always say in heated discussions about (controversial) ascents that people should not be disrespectful towards the climbers. "Dead last" does have a certain level of rudeness or discrespectfulness in it, in my opinion.

what if this has absolutely nothing to do with the olympics?

Still 2 years to go and all i hear is "what if.... olympics... Speed.... prediction..." . Give us a break

It is less than six months until the qualification begins :)

I do not think that Sharma competing has anything to do with the Olympics...but you never know.
