Jain Kim has won most IFSC comps

Jain Kim won the last World Cup in Kranj and with 28 victories, she has won most the in IFSC history. Overall, the 153 cm tall worst result since 2009 is #3. (c) Eddie Fowke

28 Jain Kim
25 Angela Eiter
22 Mina Markovic
22 Anna Stöhr
21 Ramon Julian Puigblanque, Kilian Fischhuber, Akiyo Noguchi, Alex Chabot
20 Jakob Schubert, Muriel Sarkany
18 Janja Garnbret
17 Sandrine Levet, Francois Legrand
14 Robin Erbesfield, Adam Ondra

It should be mentioned that the first Lead World Cup was held in 1989 and the first Boulder W in 1999. Note that in the early years there were normally less events per year meaning that probably that climbers like Chabot, Levet, Legrand, Sarkany and Erbesfield would probably been higher up in the list based on equal competition conditions.

It is possible you misscounted Sandrine Levet. I vaguely remember she won over 20 world cups. But her IFCS profile is not available to check.

You are right, 17 World Cup first places in boulder alone according to the Italian Wikipedia, so probably a few more in Lead

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandrine_Levet

Edit, if you scroll through the years of Sandrine's activity, you will find 5 first places in lead, so 22 podiums altogether between the specialties.

haven't checked for Speed.

Wins, not podiums. And I vaguely remember it was 23.

pbla, yes, I meant wins (i.e. golds/1st places on the podiums), sorry.
