>Janja Garnbret becomes the first boulderer who wins all events during a season

And the second one after Robyn Erbesfield who made it 25 years ago to win in any discipline (IFSC commentator was wrong about that).

Well, one might argue the commentator was correct, because Robyn won five out of six events in 1994, was third at Serre Chevalier, 21/07/1994. Does anybody remember what Masters exactly meant and what were the rules for number annual competitions?

There were only four world cup events in 1994 and Robyn won all four of them. So Charlie is (was) wrong.

The comment was more generic than "won all world events", it was "clean swept the season". One might as well argue Janja need to win championship as well to sweep the season :-)

You may make up whatever combination of comps you want (and wait till December 31st), but all the buzz about Janja and sweeping was about WC 2019 bouldering season.

I agree with JLH here and that was the reason I specifically refering to bouldering.
