Live-stream from Vail this Saturday

The sixth and last Boulder World Cup in 2019 starts on Friday in Vail with the qualification. Among the male, overall it is a battle in between Adam Ondra and Tomoa Narasaki although in theory also Kokoro Fujii could win. If Narasaki wins, Ondra will secure the overall victory being runner-up.

Janja Garnbret has won all five events and she just might be the first in the IFSC history to have won all during one season. In 2018, she just participated in three events out of which she won the last two.

Interesting is that only four out of the Top-10 in the female ranking participate. Among the male, Anze Peharc and Jakob Schubert, who in theory could have won, will not participate as well as Alexey Rubtsov, currently ranked as #3.

The major reason for all these absents is probably that the athletes have given the Olympic qualification a higher priority. The season is very long and they need to rest and train Speed. Shauna Coxey is the one having taken this to the extreme having just participated in two events in 2019.

The Combined overall ranking is based on the two best results in the three disciplines. The ones desperately needing a good result in Vail are; Miho Nonaka, Kyra Condie, Ashima Shiraishi, Brokke Raboutou, Margo Hayes, Alex Megos, Sean Bailay, Mickael Mawem and Sean McColl.

@>Jens: Are you sure about the European times of the semis and the finals?  Vail (Colorado) is eight (8) hors behind the European time. In the info sheet it says, that the semis will begin Saturday at 9:30a.m. in Vail. That shoud be 5.30pm, and not  -as you mentioned - at 11:30 a.m.

ET? Vail is not east, it's in Colorado, so it uses MDT (Mountain Daylight Time), which is UTC -6, so 8 hours behind CET (Central European Time = UTC +2).
Why not just reference the official IFSC page?:
