Mia Krampl, Jakob Schubert win Arco Rock Master Duel 2019

di

The Rock Master Duel was won in Arco, Italy, on Saturday night in front of a huge crowd by Mia Krampl from Slovenia and Jakob Schubert from Austria.

On Saturday night the Climbing Stadium in Arco, Italy, hosted the Rock Master Duel, an exciting format that since 2000 has provided fans the opportunity to watch the best of the best battle it out on two identical, parallel routes.

Lead World Champion Adam Ondra aimed to win his fifth consecutive Duel, a feat he was unable to achieve due to Jakob Schubert: "This is the first time I've beaten Adam in the Duel, I think; I was even able to go under the minute improving challenge after challenge."

After his initial disappointment the Ondra congratulated his colleague: "I had fun, Jakob was very strong and we had a great final. It took me a bit longer, but it was important to go under the minute and I did it. The Duel means fun because there's no pressure and I hope it stays that way". The crowd filled the entire Climbing Stadium and applauded Jan Hojer who beat Max Rudigier in the small final.

The women’s Duel was less balanced. Mia Krampl beat, not just once but twice, Britain’s Molly Thompson Smith after their first run all the way to the top hold to be cancelled due to a false start

"What an Incredible year, it's the first time for me here at the Duel and it was interesting to try something new. With Janja Garnbret and myself the Slovenian climbing movement is going from strength to strength. Training with the best is great" commented the the Lead Vice-World Champion after the race.

In the final for the third place Laura Rogora achieved another great result - after winning Youth World Championship gold in Boulder, Lead and Combined - and finished third in the Duel: "Now there’s finally time for some rest. The Duel is a competition without pressure and that’s why it is unique". Slovenia’s Mina Markovic placed fouth: "The route was beautiful, I'm very happy to be back and to have taken part in the final, Arco is a paradise for our sport".
