Milan Climbing flash: The Bouldering World Cup and the other visions

21.04.2011 by Planetmountain

The Bouldering World Cup as seen through the (enamoured) eyes of Nicola Noè and Nicoletta Costi and the particular photos taken by Diego Neonati.


Parco Sempione more beautiful than ever before, in these sunny spring days with electrifying air.

Jain Kim, concentrating and stretching behind the seems, seeming like a heavenly Degas ballerina

Celestial Jain Kim wins the bouldering competition, with the crowd "shocked" by her long double-dyno on the first problem in the final and her long chalking-up on the last slab.

Gabriele Moroni's cross-though on problem #3 in the qualifiers, described by Marzio Nardi as the "David Copperfield of climbing"

Gabriele Moroni who produced a dream-performance for ages: 7 consecutive tops with 6 FLASH, then one zone on attempt #1 and he messed up the final problem in the Semi-final, resulting in a honourable 7th place overall.

Jenny Lavarda, Elena Chiappa and Anna Borella together in a black and white photograph to represent Italy's colours.

Enrico Baistrocchi interviews for the Lombardy news channel, displaying his refined TV appeal.

Chiara Limonta, in her World Cup debut, well worth showing on Italian TV.

Anna Stohr and Kilian Fischhuber, the podium couple… ;-)

The flowery pants worn by Guillaume Glairon-Mondet, unjustly described by many as being "tasteless"... but why o why did he change them on the last problem, putting the podium at risk?

The crowd in search of a great show, and wasn't disappointed.

The imprudent attempt by the police force to annul the event because the stage was a couple of centimeters off the ground :-(

The antique blue frieze in the press room in the Palazzina dell’Arena Civica.

American Alex Puccio, the crowd favourite for proving her Italian roots by shouting "Vai Puccettona mia!".

Simone Raina "the extremely dangerous hooligan leader" who organised the spectators with megaphone, tambourine and high spirits.

The side events, the bouldering comps for the under 8, under 10, under 12, under 18, amateurs and Lombardy Cup... there's no time like the present

The Russian Speed athlete who at the bar asked instead of asking "il conto", the bill, asked "il conto alla rovescia", the countdown...

The other Russian Speed athlete who ate two firsts, three seconds and four tenths...

The many, many friends and spectators who didn't want to miss this magical spectacle!
