World Cup Difficulty, Lagni and Bodet victorious


Italian Dino Lagni and French Stéphanie Bodet win first event of World Cup Difficulty 2000.


Last year's competition season came to a thrilling close with the 1999 World Championship in Birmingham, won by the Italian Dino Lagni.
This year's highly anticipated World Cup Difficulty got off to a blazing start last weekend in Chamonix, France and was won, once again, by Lagni.

Climbing beneath a light drizzle, the 30 year-old placed first ahead of the Frenchman Alexandre Chabot, the only finalist who came near to Lagni. The Japanese Yuji Hirayama and Ukrainian Maxim Petrenko placed somewhat lower down and gained third equal. 5th place went to the Ukrainian Evgueni Krivosheitsev, 6th to the Frenchman Arnaud Petit, 7th to the Ukrainian Serik Kazbekov and 8th to the young Swiss Roman Felix, Junior World Cup title holder.

French Stephanie Bodet saw off stiff competition in the women's field, beating the Slovenian Martina Cufar to first place. Muriel Sarkany, Belgium, and Liv Sansoz, France, placed third equal. Chloé Minoret placed fifth, ahead of Elena Choumilova, sixth. The Russian athlete is currently leading the World Cup Bouldering ranking and is evidently not worried about jeopardising her bouldering form. Jenny Lavarda's World Cup debut could not have been better - the sixteen year-old Italian placed 7th.

Next event in the competition calendar is the third stage of the World Cup Bouldering 2000, to take place in Chamonix this weekend.
