Shivani CHARAK (IND) – 18th in women’s Boulder & Lead

“My qualification was ok. I tried to do my best, but I didn’t perform at my best. The Lead route was ok, but I fell quite early. Boulder was just ok for me also, but I have seen here what I need to do to improve, and I will go back to India and train on those things hard now. For this competition, hopefully my qualification was enough to make the semi-finals.”

OGATA Yoshiyuki (JPN) – 3rd in men’s Boulder & Lead

“It wasn’t my best performance I think because I made some little mistakes, but I think I’ve done enough to make the semi-finals tomorrow and I can try my best and do my best climbing.

“I need to recover for tomorrow as it’s really hot here and I got tired from today’s round. So I will shower, have dinner with my friends, relax and try to refocus my mind for tomorrow.”
