Tied finals go to countback also to quallies


Tuesday, 13 July

During the finals in Chamonix, the commentators said twice that time would be the decisive factor if there would be ties, as all eight finalists had topped the semi. This thought was also put forward in the winner interview with Laura Rogora who answered that this was not the case as her result was not tied. The commentator seems to have missed that, according to the IFSC Rules, which is easy to misunderstand, that also the qualification results counts.

7.24 Semi-final and Final rankings.
B) in relation to the Semi-Final round, if any competitors are tied following the ranking procedure of Article 7.22, their relative ranking shall be determined by count-back to their Qualification Ranking (unless the Qualification round was held with two Starting Groups).
C) in relation to the Final round, if any competitors are tied following the ranking procedure of Article 7.22, their relative ranking shall be determined:
1) by count-back to their rankings from the preceding round; and
2) if following count-back, any competitors are tied in joint first, second or third place, these places shall be determined by the climbing time for each competitor (lower times are better).

Alex Totkova was tied with Vita Lukan at 38+ and Vita made it to that score in less time than Alex. However, as Alex had a better ranking coming into to the final, she got the bronze. From my understanding, it seems that the word "relative" is missing in 7.24 C 1.

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 …
