di

The final stage of the Ice Climbing World Cup 2016 took place last weekend at Rabenstein - Corvara in Italy. After four competitions, both the Lead and Speed World Cups were won by the Russians Maria Tolokonina and Maxim Tomilov. Lead stage victory went ot Janez Svoljšak from Slovenia and Han Na Rai Song from Korea, while the fastest Speed climbers were Radomir Proshchenko and Tolokonina. Corvara also awarded the European Championship title, won by Svoljšak and Switzerland's Petra Klingler (Lead) and by Proshchenko and Tolokonina (Speed).

Two new winning faces emerged on Sunday at the Ice climbing World Cup2016 in Corvara. In a high quality Lead final Slovenian Janez Svoljšak and Korean Han Na Rai Song triumphed. The exciting men’s duel was fought in the pouring rain. It did not take place as originally expected between Russian World Champion Maxim Tomilov and runner-up Hee Yong Park from Korea, but between Janez Svoljšak from Slovenia and Yannick Glatthard from Switzerland, two emerging talents on the international ice climbing circuit. In the end Svoljšak was the only climber who made it to the top of the demanding route. The 22-year old Slovenian enjoyed his first World Cup victory and was also crowned European Champion, a title that was also awarded in this South Tyrolean World Cup event. Hee Yong Park placed third in the World Cup, while Alexey Tomilov from Russia won European Championship Bronze. The overall World Cup Lead ranking was won by Maxim Tomilov who finished fifth in Corvara.

Rainer loses her hold in the final
Han Na Rai Song won the women's event, and in the quality final Petra Klingler from Switzerland and Maryam Filippova from Russia lost out to the Korean athlete. Klingler was crowned new European Champion though, ahead of Filippova and Ekatierna Vsasova, also from Russia. Three times World Champion winner Angelika Rainer from nearby Meran risked everything in the final but lost her grip and finished in 5th place in the World Cup and in fourth place in the European Championships.

The World Cup overall Lead ranking was won by Maria Tolokonina. The Russian had already secured victory before the event in Corvara whe she finished in 8th place after three consecutive victories.

Russia excels in speed climbing
In the speed climbing athletes had to climb the 15m ice tower as fast as possible. In this discipline Russian athletes are historically in a league of their own and once again they lived up to expectations. Radomir Proshchenko won first World Cup victory on Saturday in 8.29 seconds, while his teammates Egor Trapeznikov (8.77) and Pavel Batushev (8.97) placed second and third. The best athlete outside Russia was Iranian Mohammadreza Safdarian Korouyeh (9.42). Overall Speed World Cup winner Maxim Tomilov had to settle for 13th place.

In the women's event three athletes from the country with the largest surface area in the world ended up taking the podium places. Maria Tolokonina (11.44) won her third of four World Cup events this season and to win the overall World Cup 2016. Ekaterina Koshcheeva (12.66) placed second, Maryam Filippova (12.96) third. Thanks to their victories in Corvara, Proshchenko and Tolokonina were also crowned European Speed Champions.

Youth and Junior World Championships
The World Cup event in Corvara was an overwhelming success once again. But Reinhard Graf and his many helpers cannot rest on their laurels. At the end of this week, from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 February the World Youth Championships in the age groups U22 ,U19 and U16 will take place here.
