Shauna Coxsey, Keita Watabe, Iuliia Kaplina, Reza Alipourshenazandifar win Nanjing stage of Boulder & Speed World Cup

di

Nanjing in China hosted the third stage of the Boulder World Cup 2017 on 28 and 29 April, won by Britain's Shauna Coxsey and Japan's Keita Watabe. The second stage of the Speed World Cup was won by Russia’s Iuliia Kaplina and Iran’s Reza Alipourshenazandifar. Both athletes managed to set new world records.

Japanese athletes dominated the Bouldering World Cup once again, with 3 + 3 athletes from the land of the rising sun qualifying for the last round. Problem #1 proved practically impossible for all except Shauna Coxsey who sent it first go, and obviously also for Janja Garnbret who, as yet in her short and brilliant career, has never missed a senior finals. Thanks to an extraordinary flash the Slovenian immediately took the lead, but on problem #2 Coxsey - a huge dyno followed by shoulder press to match on an undercling top - displayed her class flashing it effortlessly. Miho Nonaka sent it 4th go while, with just 12 seconds to go the clock suddenly reset itself while Mei Kotake was about to match the top. A technical incident was called and after a short break the Japanese climber was given another 2 minutes to complete the problem, but although getting heartbreakingly close she failed to top out. Garnbret sent this problem 4th go to take the lead once again. Problem #3 proved decisive: Coxsey needed four goes to match the top and, under pressure for the first time, Garnbret failed and didn’t even manage to reach the bonus zone. This lead to the final problem which, for Coxsey, proved a mere formality. The Brit took her second victory this year while Garnbret settled for second; there can be no doubt that the duel between these two will continue for the rest of the season. Mio Nonaka took third, ahead of a surprising Jain Kim, the queen of lead competitions, who on the final problem executed a textbook figure-of-four to beat Aya Onoe and the unfortunate Mei Kotake, fifth and sixth respectively.

Tomoa Narasaki qualified last for the men’s final yet he sent problem #1 third go, matched only by his teammate Keita Watabe who needed one attempt more. Jernej Kruder flashed problemi #2, where Narasaki was only awarded with the bonus hold as he fell going for the top after having made the lower section look like a walk in the part. Watabe piled on the pressure by topping out second go. Kruder, on fighting form like never before in a World Cup, sent problem #3 fourth go, Watabe made a beginners mistake (he didn’t match both feet on the enormous starting hold) but kept his never and sent it second go, as did Narasaki. These provisional results meant that these three were all assured a medal prior to attempting problem #4, as Jongwon Chon, Manuel Cornu and Rei Sugimoto had simply made too little headway on the earlier blocs. Kruder failed to top out on the last problem and settled for third - unbelievably this is his first-ever World Cup podium - Narasaki powered to the top to finish second while Watabe, after claiming bronze at Meiringen placing 4th at Chongqing - flashed the last problem to win his first stage of a Bouldering World Cup.

The second stage of the Speed World Cup was won by Russia’s Iuliia Kaplina and Iran’s Reza Alipourshenazandifar. In the women’s final Kaplina beat her teammate Mariia Krasavina while Anouck Jaubert got the better of Anna Tsyganova to win third place. In the men’s event Aleksandr Shikov fell and handed victory to Alipourshenazandifar, while Vladislav Devlin beat Bassa Mawem in the battle for third place. Both Kaplina and Alipourshenazandifa set a new world record: the Russian stopped the clock after 7.38 to beat the record she set at Chongqing last week, while the 2014 men’s record of 5.60, set in 2014 by Danyil Boldyrev, was whittled down to 5.48 seconds.
