Jakob Schubert and Mina Markovic big in China


Austrian Jakob Schubert wins both Lead World Cup 2011 events in China. Mina Markovic from Slovenia won the event in Xining, and shared victory with Jain Kim from Korea in Changzhi

Poker! After victories in Chamonix, Briançon and Xining last week, Jakob Schubert has now won the 4th stage of the Lead World Cup 2011 in Changzhi, China. The Austrian beat closest rival Ramón Julian Puigblanque by a tiny margin - a hold held compared to a hold only touched - while Sachi Amma from Japan placed third.

In the women's event Mina Markovic continued her winning form - after victories in Chamonix and in Xining - and tied for first place along with Jain Kim from Korea whom she had only just beat the previous week thanks to her better semi-final result. Although teammate Maja Vidmar topped out along with Markovic and Kim she had to settle for third due to an inferior qualification result.

The battle for overall domination in the Women's World Cup is still wide open with Markovic 45 points ahead of Kim, while with four clean victories Schubert obviously leads the overall ranking, 124 points ahead of Ramón Julian Puigblanque. It's early days yet to make predictions seeing that the 2011 Cup is comprised of 10 events and, in truth, things could easily have swung in many other climber's favour since victories in both Changzhi and Xinig came about thanks to the closest of margins. The next competition, Puurs at the end of September, will be an important turnpoint therefore and it'll be interesting to see if the reigning World Champion Ramón Julian Puigblanque can unlock the key, or whether we're witnessing a changing of the guards at the very top!
