This "japan dominate" in every title about the worldcup is becoming boring & annoying. We get it, japan has a strong climbing scene.

As the domination increases step by step it is newsworthy.

"As the domination increases step by step it is newsworthy." Just no.

This was after Taian: "I am predominantly following men's bouldering competition and IMHO there is no such thing as increasing Japanese domination which Jens mentioned several times. They have less men in top 10 compared to previous season; also their average top 20 overall position is worse; they have twice less male in finals; their average final and top 20 result is worse compared to previous season. Actually it looks like rest of the world might be catching up with Japanese men.

Also, if I remember correctly, Jens stated there will be new names in top 10 in Chinese competition. No such thing occured though, no new name in top 10 (I hope I am correct).

Also Jens reporting seems tendentious (or biased) towards the goal to prove there is actually increased domination; for example Jens reports there is ten Japanese male in top 25 - last year there was 10 Japanese male in top 20 though."

It is correct that the male Japanese domination is about the same.

I am talking Japanese domination in general meaning both male and female :)

@Jens previously you've written Japanese men domination, don't look for excuses (or don't lie to yourself at least):)

As usually, Jens Larssen is unable to acknowledge he was wrong in something...
