Two Salt Lake City WC weekends - half of the Olympians missing

EDITORIAL

19 May 2021

The second Boulder World Cup of the season starts on Friday in Salt Lake City with the finals on Saturday, registrations. Then, the following Friday, there will be a Speed World Cup followed by another Boulder WC during the weekend, registrations. Almost all the best and the Olympians will participate. Here are some surprising notes from the registrations:

1. The four Olympians from Japan as well as Janja Garnbret will only participate in the second event.
2. Shauna Coxey will only compete during the first weekend, meaning no Speed event for her.
3. Jakob Schubert and Jessica Pilz will only compete the first weekend.
4. No Koreans or Chinese in any of the events.
5. No Bassa Mawev or Russian Speed specialists are registered.
6. The only Russian is Alexey Rubtsov, meaning that two female Olympians are missing. 7. Mia Krampl and Alberto Gines Lopez have not signed up for any events.

Overall, as it stands, less than half of the Olympians are registered to compete in all three events. Checking up some things with the athletes it seems Schubert and Pilz will just compete the first weekend. Michael Piccolruaz had planned to compete in Speed but he is not registered in Speed so he will check up on what has gone wrong. It should be noted that the registrations are closed but you can make "replacements" until May 23 for the second weekend.
