The best climbing photos of the Wroclaw World Games 2017


From 20 - 30 July 2017 Wrocław (Breslavia) in Poland hosted the 10th World Games. More than 35,800 athletes competed in the 2017 edition dedicated to 36 different sports, including sport climbing with its three disciples Lead, Speed and Boulder.

Japan’s Keiichiro Korenaga won the Lead event, climbing to the same hold as Yuki Hada but beating his teammate due to countback to the Semifinals. Canada’s Sean McColl placed third, ahead of Romain Desgranges, Domen Skofic and a superlative Francesco Vettorata; all three fell off the 22nd hold and were split by their Semifinal results. Home favourite Maciej Dobrzanski and Australia’s Campbell Harrison completed the lineup finishing 5th and 6th. In the women’s final the route setters failed to separate the three leading lights, i.e. Belgium’s Anak Verhoeven, Slovenia’s Janja Garnbret and France’s Julia Charnoudie and so countback to the Semis was used once again. They were followed by Jain Kim (4th), Jessica Pilz (5th), Akiyo Noguchi (6th), Mina Markovic (7th) and Claire Buhrfeind (8th).

Serbia’s Stasa Gejo stole the show in the Boulder event as the 19-year-old was the only athlete to send all 4 problems in the final. Miho Nonaka from Japan settled for silver thanks to her three tops, while France’s Fanny Gibert secured bronze, ahead of Akiyo Noguchi, Monika Retschy and Margo Hayes, 4th, 5th and 6th respectively. In the men’s event only 19-year-old Yoshiyuki Ogata from Japan sent all 4 problems, while Germany’s Jan Hojer managed to top 3 to secure silver, ahead of Russia’s Aleksei Rubtsov.

In the Speed event Russia’s Iuliia Kaplina not only won gold but also set a new female world record, beating France’s Anouck Jaubert in the final with a new time of 7.32 seconds. In the small final for third and fourth place Anna Tsyganova beat her teammate Mariia Krasavina. In the men’s final Reza Alipourshenazandifar won the first gold medal for his country, Iran, by beating Ukraine’s Danyil Boldyrev who fell during the final sprint. Stanislav Kokorin beat Marcin Dzienski in the small final to win the bronze medal.
