Natalia Grossman, Kokoro Fuji crowned Boulder World Champions 2021 at Moscow

by

On Saturday at the Climbing World Championships in Moscow Natalia Grossman from the USA and Kokoro Fuji from Japan were crowned Bouldering World Champions 2021.

The Boulder World Championship 2021 was won on Saturday night by a nigh impeccable Natalia Grossman from the USA who after dominating the Semifinal went on to win the Final with 4 tops in a mere 7 attempts. Despite the pressure of performing last the 20-year-old season revelation managed to flash three of the four problems, always with a beaming smile of joy and disbelief that things were coming together so perfectly. With 9 medals in just one World Cup season this is undoubtedly Grossman’s standout year, and it will be fascinating to see her compete against the undisputed queen of climbing competitions Janja Garnbret who, after winning gold at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and claiming the 2021 Lead World Cup had decided not to participate in Moscow. In the thrilling and tense final Camilla Moroni from Italy produced the performance of a lifetime sending all 4 problems, too, but requiring 6 attempts more than Grossman; her scream of elation on bloc #4 said it all. 23-year-old Stasa Gejo battled her way to bronze with 2 tops and 4 zones, and this is now her second bronze after the 2018 Boulder World Championships in Innsbruck. Her failure to match top #3 was both heartbreaking and costly. Elena Krasovskaia of the CFR placed an impressive fourth, Brooke Raboutou of the USA started superbly but eventually settled for fifth and Andrea Kümin of Switzerland, in her first ever finals, completed the lineup sixth.

In the men's competition Japan somewhat unsurprisingly led the field with Kokoro Fujii sending all four final problems, two of which flash. He was the only athlete to achieve this feat and his victory was more than deserved and even more impressive when you consider the fact that he beat teammate and Olympian Tomoa Narasaki, who had won the World Champion title at Hachioji in Japan in 2019 and in Paris in 2016. Frenchman Manuel Cornu roared back into the international limelight with a strong performance - his flash of problem #2 was a stroke of genius and he followed it up with a flash on #4 to secure bronze - his second after securing bronze on home soil at the 2016 edition of the championships in Paris. Veteran Aleksey Rubtsov delighted the crowd with a fourth place that, had it not been for the five attempts more than Cornu, could even have been bronze, while Israel’s Marcus Nimrod and Slovenia’s Anze Peharc finished in fifth and sixth place, respectively.
