Lorenzi and Lettner win with dramatic fashion in Brixen

EDITORIAL

Sunday, 8 May

Simon Lorenzi won over Mathieu Ternant by countback by flashing the last boulder. In practice, they got the exact same results with three flashes and a zone on their second attempt. Yannick Flohé was the only one who did the first three boulders but as he could not do the last, he got the bronze instead. Lorenzi comments in the official press release, "I am so happy, I’m feeling home here, since my dad is Italian. Boulders were not so difficult, but you cannot make any mistake if you want to win. I’ll be here in June for the World Cup… and we’ll see.”

In the female category five girls got all four boulders and Sandra Lettner won by doing them in seven tries. Eliska Adamovska needed eight tries and Agathe Calliet nine tries. Lettner comments, "I did not expect it, since I had some problems during the last weeks. I still cannot believe it. Vertikale is one of the best gyms I’ve ever been to, I won here in 2019 also. Now it’s time for another European Cup stage, I’ll be doing my best”. Complete results

Reino "Nicki" Horak, team manager Norway comments to 8a, "Perfecly executed competition with a fantastic atmosphere. The location is great, it was packed to the last seat and everyone could enjoy a great show. I am looking forward to the World Cup in June."
