Ice Climbing World Cup 2014 - Korea: Tolokonina and Tomilov win, Angelika Rainer places third

14.01.2014 by Marco Servalli

The first stage of the Ice Climbing World Cup 2014 took place in Cheongsong, South Korea, and was won by the Russian athletes Maria Tolokonina andAlexey Tomilov. Angelika Rainer from Italy placed third.

"I'm pleased with this result" explained Rainer" after having won this competition for two years in a row, it's not easy to do so again. I didn't win today but nevertheless it was a great fight." The ice climber from Italy's South Tyrol continued "this World Cup stage is organised really well and there's lots of national media interest, it's always great fun to be here. During the final I felt a bit tired, perhaps because of the long journey and jet lag, but I'm on good form and so I now look forward to the next stage." Victory went to Russia's Maria Tolokonina, the fastest to reach the top, while Korea's Shin Woonseon slipped into second place after having topped out slightly slower, just Rainer.

The men's event was dominated by the Tomilov brothers: Alexey took gold thanks to his lone top in the final, and in doing so doubled his Korean takings after victory here last year, while his brother Maxim placed second, beating Korea's Park HeeYong.

The Speed event was won by Nikolay Kuzovlev and by Natalia Kulicova.

The competition circuit now travels to Busteni, in Romania, where the men's qualifications begin this Firday. The competition can be followed on the federation's official website www.iceclimbingworldcup.org
