Natalia Grossman is the Boulder World Champion

Saturday, 18 September

Natalia Grossman, who won the qualification and the semi, is the new Boulder World Champion after having topped all boulders in seven attempts.

Overall it was possibly the best female Boulder final for many years and Stasa Gejo got the bronze by doing two bronzes.
