Janja Garnbret, Adam Ondra crowned Lead World Champions 2019

di

Janja Garnbret from Slovenia and Adam Ondra from the Czech Republic extended their legacy earlier today by winning the Lead World Championship in Hachioji, Japan. Mia Krampl and Alexander Megos took silver, Ai Mori and Jakob Schubert bronze.

Two days after convincingly winning the Bouldering World Cup, Slovenia’s Janja Ganrbret has doubled her takings with an extraordinary win of the Lead World Championship; no woman had ever won two disciplines in the same world championship before and in securing the historic double the 20-year-old has once again set a new gold standard.

Garnbret wanted to prove that her troublesome start to the Lead World Cup 2019 is nothing but a minor hiccough- currently she’s trailing somewhat surprisingly to young Chaehyun Seo - and she made her mark by dominating both the qualifiers and the semis. Last out in the finals, as the crowd went silent she dug in deep to climb a staggering 4 holds higher than second placed teammate Mia Krampl and to just 3 holds from the top. Young Ai Mori from Japan claimed bronze in beating even younger Chaehyun Seo and expert Akiyo Noguchi on countback after all fell off the same hold on the headwall, while Lead World Champion 2018 Jessica Pilz placed sixth, ahead of Vita Lukan who was probably still recovering from her remarkable semifinal performance a few hours earlier, and Julia Chanourdie who finished 8th.

In the men’s event big names such as Romain Desgranges, Adam Ondra more than made up for his disappointment on Tuesday, when he had failed to even score a zone in the Bouldering Final after having so evidently dominated the earlier rounds, by winning the Lead World Championship 2019. In doing so Ondra retained the title for the third time, after Paris 2016 and Gijon 2014 and matched only one other male athlete who has won three World Championships: legendary Frenchman François Legrand in 1991, 1993 and 1995.

Ondra, fifth out, beat Alexander Megos by just one hold; the German had led the Semis and despite some early mistakes managed to battle up to the headwall before his foot slipped just as he was going for Ondra’s highpoint. Jakob Schubert placed third and took his second medal in Japan after taking silver in the Bouldering World Championship on Tuesday. Fourth place went to Tomoa Narasaki; his Bouldering World Championship win two days ago and fourth place here proves he’s a force to be reckoned with for the overall Combined title. Sean McColl fell off the same hold and slipped into fifth on countback, ahead of Italy’s Stefano Ghisolfi who climbed easily before coming undone when trying to clip a quickdraw. Kai Harada and Hannes Puman battled hard on the burly first half of the route and placed 7th and 8th respectively.
