Three weeks after the last IFSC Lead World Cup in Imst (AUT), the world’s best Lead climbers were back in business in Stavanger (NOR) on August 21-22! In the women’s field, Mina Markovic secured first place once again, while in the men’s category, Gautier Supper took gold for the second time this season.
On the women's side, Mina Markovic (SLO) climbed to victory in Stavanger for the third time this year, falling only two moves from the top of the final route. Austrian young gun Jessica Pilz took silver after posting the same score as Mina Markovic in the final, the two being separated using their semi-final results, while Anak Verhoeven (BEL) came third.
In the men's event, once again, the French national anthem resonated in the competition venue as Gautier Supper secured his second gold medal of the season, ahead of Czech powerhouse Adam Ondra and fellow Frenchman Romain Desgranges, who arrived in Norway fresh from his victory in Imst (AUT) three weeks ago.
