Narasaki and Garnbret win semi

Sunday, 30 May

Tomoa Narasaki, who was #2 in the qualification after Kokoro Fujii, topped all four problems in seven tries winning the semi ahead of Sean Bailay needing 13 attempts. Last out was Fujii and he was in the seventh position until some 30 seconds remained when he did come up with some new beta skipping one move and secured a spot in the final.

It should be mentioned that Adam Ondra reported on Insta why he not participated. Here is part of his comments. "I hurt my shoulder in the finals last week. It is not too serious, I can still climb, but certain moves are painful and way too dangerous for me. If I decided to compete, I could likely get into the situation when I would either give up on a certain move or risk a serious injury."

Among the female, Janja Garnbret won again but surprisingly she failed on one boulder. Runner up, with two tops, was Miho Nonaka followed by Oriane Bertone. The fourth was Brooke Raboutou and she was actually the only one doing boulder #3. Noteworthy is that Brooke had only scored one zone in the two first boulders.
