Janja Garnbret, Jakob Schubert win Lead World Cup 2018

di

Slovenia’s Janja Garnbret and Austria’s Jakob Schubert have won the Lead World Cup 2018, ahead of Jessica Pilz and Stefano Ghisolfi, thanks to their results at the penultimate stage that took place last weekend at Wujiang in China. The stage was won by France’s Romain Desgranges and by Garnbret and Jain Kim who tied for first. The penultimate stage of the Speed ​​World Cup was won by the Indonesians Aspar Jaelolo and Aries Susanti Rahayu.

Wujiang in China hosted the penultimate stage of the Lead World Cup 2018 and all eyes were on compelling and intense duel between Janja Garnbret and Jessica Pilz on the one hand, and between Jakob Schubert and Stefano Ghisolfi on the other. All were gunning for the coveted season title, with Pilz and Ghisolfi hoping to reduce the margin, and Garnbret and Schubert wishing to secure overall victory.

Unfortunately the much anticipated showdown didn’t materialise because heavy rain forced the organisers to cancel both finals. In truth the women’s final did take place initially with Jessica Pilz, third last, managing to secure the route’s only top in the dying seconds of her allocated time. The rain then intensified and both Jain Kim and Janja Garnbret climbed powerfully, only to slip off wet holds on the final section. Following a technical incident appeal the organisers had no other option but to cancel not only the women's final but also the men's final, scheduled to take place a few minutes later.

In rare occurrences such as this one, IFSC rules state that countback to the semifinal must be applied, meaning that stage victory went to France’s Romain Desgranges and Garnbret and Jain Kim, joint equal. This stop obviously also significantly affected the overall standings and, one stage before the last 2018 World Cup event, the season winners were already confirmed: Jakob Schubert - who won the third Lead season title of his career during a startling season that also saw him win the World Championships in Innsbruck - and Janja Garnbret, for the third time in a row.

Stefano Ghisolfi and Jessica Pilz, placed 5th and 3rd in Wujiang and have ended the season with a superb silver medal in the overall standing, while the bronze medal will be decided at the last stage on 27 - 28 October in Xiamen.

It goes without saying that it’s disappointing that the competition didn’t go down to the wire because, as the athletes themselves state, it would have been great to see everyone compete in the final, and also because according to the route setters Leonardo di Marino, Carles Brasco and Remy Samin, that line of holds was one of the most beautiful they’d ever set.

Wujiang also hosted the penultimate stage of the Lead World Cup, won by the Indonesians Aspar Jaelolo and Aries Susanti Rahayu. Italy’s Ludovico Fossali scored two sub-6 second runs and finished second together with France’ Anouck Jaubert, while Reza Alipourshenazandifar from Iran and Iulia Kaplina from Russia finished third.
