Vail victories for Jongwon Chon and Shauna Coxsey

di

The fifth stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2017 was won on Saturday 10 June in Vail, Colorado, USA by South Korea’s Jongwon Chon and by Britain’s Shauna Coxsey.

Vail, Colorado, put on display some great bouldering last Friday and Saturday as 59 male athletes and 55 female athletes lined up for the fifth event of the seven-stage Bouldering World Cup 2017. This promised to be a watershed leg, crucial for vital World Cup points and Slovenia’s Janja Garnbret and Britain’s Shauna Coxsey knew this all too well. The two have been duelling since the start of the seasons and prior to Vail Garnbret trailed by a mere 8 points - a margin which promised Coxsey little comfort.

In the qualifiers Garnbret piled on the pressure and sent all 5 problems, while in the semis things started badly and she failed to make any headway whatsoever on problem #1, resulting in her failing to qualify for the finals (for the first time in her already illustrious career) due to 2 more attempts needed to reach a bonus. This mistake cost her dearly; without the pressure of her rival Coxsey literally flew in the finals and with 3 tops secured her 10th World Cup victory, having beaten Japan’s Akiyo Noguchi and Miho Nonaka, second and third respectively. America’s Alex Puccio delighted the crowd and just missed out on the podium, while young Slovenian Katja Kadic placed fifth ahead of defending Bouldering World Champion Petra Klingler.

Japanese athletes dominated the men’s event, with 9 of the best 10 making the cut in the qualifiers, and 4 of the 6 finalists coming from land of the rising sun. Food for thought in the run up to the Olympics in 2020… 2015 Bouldering World Cup winner didn’t seem in the slightest concerned and, in a league of his own, topped all four problems to beat Meichi Narasaki (not to be confused with his elder brother and current World Cup leader Tomoa Narasaki) and Yoshiyuki Ogata who placed second and third. Russia’s Aleksei Rubstov placed fourth, ahead of Japan’s Kokoro Fujii and Keita Watabe.
