Ondra and Hammelmüller win EC in Prague

1 May 2022

Adam Ondra won the European Boulder Cup in Prague after lots of drama where he, as the last climber, topped out the last problem. Runner-up was Edvards Gruzitis followed by Tim Reuser. Complete results (c) Petr Chodura and comments by Ondra.

"One of the best comps I have remembered for years. Climbing out last in front of the home crowd was just amazing. I definitely got excited and I got this hunger to compete again."

Among the female, Eva Hammelmüller, who was #6 in the semi, was the only female to make two boulders in the final. Last year she was Top-22, four times out of five, in the Lead World Cup. The 21-year-old did her first 8c+/9a in 2021 and just three weeks ago she did an 8A+. Interestingly Eva is 167 cm but has an arm span of 180 cm. Sabina Van Essen got the silver and Lana Skusek got the bronze. Complete results and Full video.
