Shauna Coxsey and Kokoro Fuji win Bouldering World Cup 2017 debut at Meiringen

di

The first stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2017 was won on Saturday, April 8 at Meiringen in Switzerland by Britain’s Shauna Coxsey and Japan’s Kokoro Fujii.

After the furore following the International Federation of Sport Climbing’s decision to render competition live streaming pay to watch, and after the subsequent partial retractment which granted free viewing of the first comp in 2017, when all things were finally said and done some fine bouldering went down at Meiringen in Switzerland.

The first stage was won neatly by British climber Shauna Coxsey who immediately took up from where she had left off at the end of 2016. Despite shoulder surgery a few months ago Coxsey dominated the comp, send all four problems in the final. Katharina Saurwein produced her best-ever World Cup performance to send two problems and finish second, while Miho Nonaka sent one problem to finish third. Serbia’s Stasa Gejo finished just ahead of reigning World Champion and crowd-favourite Petra Klinger, and all three were separated by the number of attempts needed to send their lone top. Slovenian champion Janja Garnbret evidently failed to find the right flow in the final and concluded her run with not tops and just two bonuses.

In the men’s event three Japanese athletes qualified for the final, giving further demonstration of the breadth and talent of this team. The stage was won by 2016 World Cup runner up Kokoro Fujii, who beat Russia’s Aleksei Rubtsov and his two teammates Keita Watabe and Rei Sugimoto, third and fourth respectively. All four athletes suffered in the final, set maybe a little too difficult being the results (and definitely far too hot - it was rumoured to be 25/26°C in the arena). All sent just one problem and they were separated by the number of tries needed to reach the top. Slovenia’s Jernej Kruder finished fifth, Germany’s David Firnenburg (Juniors winner at the European Youth Championships in Arco in 2014) finished sixth. It’s worth highlighting Gabriele Moroni’s remarkable performance: after a remarkable comeback in the semis, he was first excluded from the final due to just one bonus attempt.

The next stage of the Bouldering World Cup will be held on 22 and 23 April in Chongqing in China. In the meantime, the IFSC has announced it will continue discussions this week about how to proceed with the prickly live streaming issue.
