IFSC Climbing Worldcup (B) - Vail (USA) 2016

10 - 11 June 2016

Megan Mascarenas of the United States and Kokoro Fujii of Japan claimed Gold at the penultimate sixth competition of the 2016 Bouldering World Cup season.

A large crowd trampled the grassy viewing space on Saturday to cheer on the finalists of the Bouldering World Cup in Vail, USA. Once again, the world’s best bouldering athletes wowed fans of sport climbing with their unique strength and climbing prowess.

Reigning Vail champion Mascarenas earned Gold in Colorado again by sending all four of the finals problems. After topping the last semi-finals problem in the exact number of attempts needed to qualify, Shauna Coxsey of Great Britain secured her top spot in the Overall Bouldering World Cup standings by completing three finals problems for Silver. Despite having two tops apiece, Melissa Le Neve of France missed out on a medal by three bonus attempts to veteran athlete Anna Stöhr of Austria.

Japan and Russia dominated the semi-finals for the men. Kokoro Fujii of Japan jumped into first place in the Bouldering World Cup standings with his victory in Vail. He was the only athlete to top two of the men’s finals problems. Japan teammate Tomoa Narasaki finished second after requiring three less attempts to snag his four bonus holds than Alexey Rubtsov of Russia who won Bronze. Yoshiyuki Ogata of Japan took fourth in his first World Cup finals.
