24 June 2022

In the boulder national team ranking Japan got 20 783 points which can be compared with 15 223 for USA and 10 176 for France. Japan has dominated the boulder competition scene since 2015. Among the male, they set a new record, getting all the three podiums and overall they had eight males among the Top-19. Team USA was runner-up also in 2021 but previously they have very seldom been among the Top-5.

The country that dropped the most in the 2022 ranking is Slovenia and that relates mainly to that Janja Garnbret did only participate in one event, which she won. Complete ranking
