Viktoriia Meshkova & Jernej Kruder crowned European Boulder Champions 2020

di

In Moscow today Viktoriia Meshkova from Russia and Jernej Kruder from Slovenia won the 2020 European Bouldering Championship.
 Chloe Caulier and Sergei Luzhetskii won silver, Stasa Gejo and Nikolai Iarilovets bronze.

The 2020 European Climbing Championship continues at an incessant pace and despite illustrious names missing fro the starting list - as noted previously, several nations have decided not to participate due to Coronavirus including Italy, Austria, France and Spain - the competitions have been practically perfect so far. After the first Speed ​​results on Saturday and the Boulder qualifications yesterday, today was the day of reckoning for the explosive mix of power and technique.

Russia’s Viktoriia Meshkova and Slovenia’s Jernej Kruder dominated the semifinals this morning, and in the finals this afternoon they managed to keep their nerve to take the win. With 4 tops and 4 zones the 20-year-old from Ekaterinburg beat Chloe Caulier by the narrowest of margins after the Belgian had impressed all with her amazing power, while Serbia’s Stasa Gejo produced a memorable, epic battle to place third . Although she failed to reclaim the title she’d won in 2017, after a year out of the game due to injury, this bronze medal is nothing short of miraculous. Three German athletes completed the ranking: Lucia Dörffel finished 4th, Alma Bestvater placed 5th and Afra Hönig closed in 6th position.

In the men's competition Jernej Kruder was quite rightly nicknamed Jernej Cruiser: the Slovenian was a cut above the rest today and his domination of the impossible looking slab, solved by him only and in less than 30 seconds, was a true bouldering "masterclass". 2 tops and 3 zones guaranteed him the title, which joins his 2018 overall World Cup win, ahead of the Russians Sergei Luzhetskii with 1 top and 4 zones and his teammate Nikolai Iarilovets with 1 top and 3 zones. Ram Levin of Israel placed 4th, followed by Nicolas Collin of Belgium in 5th position and Sergei Skorodumov of Russia in 6th. 

The competitions continue tomorrow with the Lead qualification rounds that will be streamed tomorrow from 8:00 CET
