Jernej Kruder & Miho Nonaka win first stage of the Bouldering World Cup

di

The first stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2018 was won on Saturday at Meiringen in Switzerland by Japan’s Miho Nonaka and Slovenia’s Jernej Kruder.

Japanese climber Miho Nonaka won the first stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2018 at the debut in Meiringen, Switzerland last weekend by beating Slovenia’s Janja Garnbret - in the final for the 26th time in 27 international competitions - and teammate Akiyo Noguchi. All three had managed to send the four final problems and were separated by the number of attempts needed to match the last hold:: 5 secured gold, 7 silver and 9 bronze. They were trailed somewhat surprisingly by 16-year-old Austrian Sandra Lettner whose international senior debut could hardly have been better. French champion Fanny Gibert climbed superbly but her podium hopes ground to a halt on problem #4, sending her into 5th place ahead of 2017 World Cup winner Shauna Coxsey who, after a finger injury and the doctor's OK only two weeks ago, certainly didn’t expect to be in World Cup final quite so quickly.

In the men's competition Jernej Kruder was on fire and the Slovenian won his first ever Bouldering World Cup, sending 3 problems with his usual power and aggressiveness. Kruder qualified last for the finals but immediately demonstrated that it was going to be his day, and his interpretation of the dyno on problem #2 was nothing short of spectacular. Japan’s Tomoa Narasaki settled for second place with 2 tops in 4 attempts and 3 attempts to reach the bonus zone, 2 attempts less than Russia’s Aleksei Rubtsov who won bronze after having surprised everyone by sending the dyno on #2 statically. Jakob Schubert, the best after the semi-final, finished fourth ahead of Japan’s Tomoaki Takata, and 2017 World Cup winner Jongwon Chon, while despite fighting valiantly French champion Manuel Cornu slipped into 6th place.

It's worth noting that during Friday’s qualifiers sending all five blocs didn't suffice for many male athletes in group 2, where the route setting was simply too easy meaning that greats such as Keita Watabe, Gabriele Moroni and Alexander Megos failed to qualify. No doubt they’ll try their best to make amends in the next stage of the Bouldering World Cup, scheduled to take place in Moscow on 21 and 22 April.
