Slovenians supreme in Russia, Janja Garnbret and Jernej Kruder win Bouldering World Cup in Moscow

di

The second stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2019 took place in Moscow, Russia, last weekend and was won by the Slovenian climbers Janja Garnbret and Jernej Kruder. The first stage of the Speed World Cup 2019 was won on Friday night by YiLing Song and Bassa Mawem.

Moscow hosted the second stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2019 last weekend and all eyes were on Janja Garnbret and Adam Ondra, winners in Meiringen a week ago. Meiringen finalists Akiyo Noguchi and Rei Sugimoto were notable for their absence, and the qualifiers produced some surprising upsets: Jakob Schubert, Sean McColl, Stefano Gisolfi all failed to make the cut, as did Domen Skofic and Marcello Bombardi after both failing to top a single problem.

The women’s Semis proved brutally difficult with only Shauna Coxsey and Janja Garnbret sending 2 problems and only another 3 athletes sending just 1. But this is exactly what many of the world’s best have been calling for. In contrast, the women’s finals proved quite the opposite with a disproportionate number of tops and a tense battle of nerves where the athletes knew that every attempt would mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Janja Garnbret, Fanny Gilbert and Shauna Coxesy all got off to a great start by flashing problem #1, while problem #2 was set surprisingly easy for a World Cup final and flashed by all 6 finalists. Lucka Rakovec, in her debut Senior World Cup and normally a Lead climber, then proved that the depth of talent in Slovenia is simply unfathomable for a country with a population of 2 million people by flashing problem #3, a feat that was emulated by teammate Janja Garnbret a few minutes later. Coxesy failed on her first attempt and her second-go top of problem #3 meant that she slipped into second, behind Garnbret and ahead of Fanny Gilbert. When Futaba Ito sent problem #4 third go and Rakovec smoothly flashed it, it was clear that the finals would be decided by the smallest of margins. And so it was: Garnbret, Gilbert and Rakovec all flashed the last problem, while Coxsey needed two attempts. Garnbret took victory therefore with a perfect score of 4 tops in 4 attempts, Coxsey took silver with 4 tops in 6 attempts and Gilbert, with Coxsey’s identical score, slipped into third on countback. Rakovec celebrated her debut with an amazing 4th place, Jessica Pilz settled for fifth and Futaba Ito for sixth.

In the men’s competition Adam Ondra had made it through the Saturday morning qualifiers by the skin of his teeth, landing last in 20th place, but in the Semis he more than made up for it and, first out, set the bar unbeatably high. He was the only athlete to top out of all 4 problems; 2 problems more than the others who qualified for the finals in the afternoon. Last out in the finals therefore, Ondra immediately took the lead by flashing #1, while a few minutes earlier Yoshiyuki Ogata had sent it on his second go as had Jernej Kruder. Problem #2 was flashed by this trio with Anze Peharc trailing close behind, ahead of 16-year-old Rei Kawamata in only his second senior World Cup and home favourite Vadim Timonov. Kruder, who failed to qualify for the finals in Switzerland last week, was determined to keep the pressure on and he sent #3 fourth go, but Ogata responded and needed just two attempts to take the provisional lead. Not to be left out, Ondra then needed three attempts to take the provisional lead once again. The last problem looked hugely burley and when it was flashed with startling ease by Kruder, many believed the setters had misjudged the difficulties completely. Appearances, as always, can be deceptive and Kruder’s inspirational ascent proved to be the only top on problem #4, paving the way for a well-deserved victory with a score of 4 tops in 8 attempts. Ondra battled hard and even changed his shoe for better heel-hooking power, but eventually settled for silver with 3 tops in 5 attempts, while Ogata took bronze with 3 tops in 6 attempts. Disregarding his victory in the 2017 World Games in Poland, this is Ogata’s best international performance to date.

The first stage of the new Speed World Cup took place on Friday evening and was won, for the first time ever in her career, by China’s YiLing Song who beat French champion Anouck Jaubert, and by the current world no. 1 Bassa Mawem who beat home favourite Vladislav Deulin.
