The opening event of the Bouldering World Cup 2016 took place in Switzerland’s Meiringen yesterday and today and was won, after an extremely tight competition in particular in the men’s event, by Russia’s Alexey Rubtsov and Britain’s Shauna Coxsey.

Coxsey qualified last for the finals but absolutely dominated the decisive round, flashing two problems and sending one third go, to beat Melissa Le Neve, who trailed by one problem, and America’s Megan Mascarenas. The remaining three finalists, Akiyo Noguchi, Janja Garnbret and Clement Kaiser all failed to unravel any of the four final problems, and finished 4th to 6th respectively.

In the men’s event, Rubtsov beat Martin Stranik and Jorg Verhoeven by the smallest of margins: all three sent 2 problems and were therefore separated by the number of attempts and bonuses. Alban Levier, Jakob Schubert and Tyler Landman finished their runs 4th to 6th but all stood an excellent chance of standing on the podium right to the very end.

A full report will follow in due course.
