1. Janja Garnbret 400 SLO 2. Akiyo Noguchi 240 JPN 3. Fanny Gibert 188 FRA 4. Petra Klingler 180 SUI 5. Futaba Ito 178 JPN 6. Jessica Pilz 176 AUT 7. Shauna Coxsey 145 GBR Complete results (c) Eddie Fowke Janja Garnbret has already secured the title with two events remaining. It should be mentioned that Akiyo Noguchi has skipped one event and will also skip the next one in Munich. In fact, all the Top-4 best female from Japan will skip Munich and instead train and compete in Combined in Tokyo. Shauna Coxsey has skipped two events in 2019 and is not on the starting list in Munich. That is also the case for Stasa Gejo who has not done any WCs this season due to an injury. Last year winner, Miho Nonaka missed the three first due to an injury. In other words, most of the best from last year have either been injured or seem to give low priority for the Boulder WC in 2019. It should be mentioned that for the non-Japanese, the Munich WC is the best option to get a good score for the Combined World Cup 2019.
