Luka Potocar wins the overall title in spectacular fashion!

EDITORIAL

26 September 2022

Luka Potocar needed to be #7 in order to win overall. This was also his result in the semi so he started second in the final. Ultimately, the 20-year-old did not perform at his best and fell early as he struggled to find the correct beta on the first hard move it seemed. Then he could only wait for someone to fall below him as a tie would rank him below due to countback. The next man out was Raviandi Ramadhan from Indonesia making his World Cup debut in front of his home country. It starts to rain and he looks very nervous, at one point fumbling with quickdraw for close to 15 seconds. The crowd cheers him but suddenly he falls as he misses an incut part of a hold and Luka gets the overall title.

1. Luka Potocar SLO 3 860
2. Taisei Homma JPN 3 835
3. Jesse Grupper USA 3 812
4. Ao Yurikusa JPN 3 239
5. Yannick Flohé GER 2 910
