Four Japaneses Top-8


Monday, 19 August

Very exciting finish in the Combined Lead qualifications where actually Shauna Coxsey finished #3 and won overall. The big surprises were that Janja Garnbret was #8 in Lead. Winner in Lead was Ai Mori topping out in great style meaning she also got her a spot, including three other Japaneses, to the final although being #18 and #16 in Speed and Boulder. The Top-7 are qualified to the Olympics but as only one from Japan will be selected from the WCH, also #9 Brooke Raboutou and #9 Jessica Pilz made it through. (It should be said that the commentators said that only Brooke got a ticket as they said that two from Japan will be selected from the WCH. This is not correct according to the official qualification information.) It should also be mentioned that if Brooke and Jessica had been climbing faster they would have made it to the Top-8 which had kicked out Miho Nonaka from the final. 1. Shauna Coxsey 14 - 1 - 3 = 42 2. Akiyo Noguchi 10 - 4 - 2 = 80 3. Janja Garnbret 7 - 2 - 8 = 112 4. Petra Klingler 8 - 3 - 12 = 288 5. Ai Mori 18 - 16 - 1 = 288 6. Futaba Ito 4 - 5 - 15 = 300 7. Aleksandra Miroslaw 1 - 19 - 20 = 390 8. Miho Nonaka 5 - 6 - 14 = 420

Systematic Devaluing ethics

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…

No correlation between semi and final results for Top-4 in Boulder WCs

During the Bouldering World Championship in 2007, Daniel Dulac won the semifinal by flashing all four problems but in the final he did not do a single Boulder even if each of the other five finalists did three problems on average. Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
