Start Lists & Results

This Sunday started the IFSC World Cup series in Central Saanich, Canada. West Canada provided us with satisfactory weather and thousands of spectators. We got a new women’s world speed record by Iuliia Kaplina in 7.74, the previous was 7.85 earned by her as well.

The speed season started today

The beginning of the IFSC World Cup couldn’t have been better. With no rain and a temperature of 19 degrees Celsius, Canada was no doubt the best location to have an event of this magnitude. The competition was tight either for men and women, scrambling up 15 meters in under 10 seconds.

The women’s podiums changed a little bit and 3 Russians earned the 3 different medals. Mariia Krasavina couldn’t manage to beat Iuliia Kaplina, who got the Gold medal this time and the Women’s World Speed Record. Anna Tayganova took third place joining her other Russian competitors.

In the men’s side, everybody at the competition was very surprised due to the fall of the world champion Libor Hroza, it’s such a shame for him not being able to be in the podium this time. Qixin Zhong from China took gold, beating Macin Dzienski from Poland in second and Bassa Mawem from France in third.

A new World Record

Iuliia Kaplina earned a new women’s world speed record with 7.74 seconds. The previous record was 7.85 earned by her as well. Kaplina remains as the fastest women in the world.
