4 Tops and Lettner wins overall with 6 seconds

Hannah Meul started first out, as she had the worst results in qualification, and set the standard by topping out with ease. She took two long rest further down but as she understood the route was way to easy she speed up, although chalked up before getting to another jug at the top.

All the five remaining did probably know Hannah had topped but even so, nobody could beat her time. The last one out was the overall leader Laura Lammer who only needed to be fourth to win overall. Nevertheless, the young Austrian climbed faster than the rest taking almost no rest and fell on the second last hold.

1. Sandra Lettner 3 - 3 - 2 = 18
2. Vita Lukan 6 - 1 - 3 = 18
3. Laura Lammer 1 - 4 - 5 = 20
4. Hannah Meul 4 - 5 - 1 = 20
5. Elena Krasovskaia 2 - 6 - 4 = 48
6. Mao Nakamura 5 - 2 - 6 = 60
Complete results

Interestingly, if Lammer had topped and finished #2 in Lead, she would have won (at 8 points), Meul would have been second (20), Vita Lukan third (24) and Lettner fourth (27).

How do they break the tie in points, where Sandra and Vita both have 18 points... and Laura and Hannah both have 20?

Note to Jens: someone is spamming the personal messages. I just got a pm from "precious kazim" who is oh so eager to know about me and has something very important to tell me.

Tied score is separated by who won most disciplines.

In case of tie the winner is the one who was ahead of the other in two disciplines out of three. Anyway the overall result is pretty sad because we didn't see a real superior athlete. (probably they are)

It was a breakdown in route setting. In bouldering the first three finishers topped all four boulders: they were separated by one attempt each. In lead the first four topped the route: they were separated by 7 seconds, 6 seconds and 13 seconds.

This meant that lead and boulder were both decided by tie-breaks... and then the podium was decided the same way.

IFSC needs to seriously address women's routesetting.

So why are the winner Sandra? She did not win any discipline, Vita won boulders. Also Vita was ahead of Sandra after 2 disciplines..

Rajko, because Sandra beat Vita in two of the three events.
