Chongqing, China, once again did not disappoint at the third Bouldering World Cup and first Speed World Cup of the 2016 season.
Only a handful of female Bouldering athletes have won Gold in four consecutive events, and Coxsey joined this elite group last weekend with her third victory of the season. On the men’s walls, nineteen-year-old Tomoa Narasaki picked up another medal for Japan and the first Gold of his World Cup career by sending three problems.
Regarding Speed competition, Dmitrii Timofeev defeated Hroza yet again when his contestant twice miscued at the starting marks. For the women, current record-holder and top-ranked Iuliia Kaplina also brought home Gold for Russia by climbing one-and-a-half seconds quicker than Klaudia Buczek of Poland in the final set.
