US Women off to a great Boulder WC start

The US women have had a great start to the Boulder World Cup. After three events, Brooke Raboutou and Natalia Grossman, are in pole position and 15-year-old, Anastasia Sanders is ranked #8. The other solid performers thus far are Japan, with four women Top-15, followed by France, with three. Looking back to last year, these three countries were also the strongest in the women's circuit. Janja Garnbret is slated to compete in the upcoming WC in Prague , which will add to the excitement. She missed the first three due to a foot injury. Raboutou and Sanders are not registered for Prague, but they're scheduled to compete the following weekend in Brixen.
