Today, at the Sender One Climbing Gym, United States' Lauren BAIR claimed the top of the table thanks to the 1st place she nailed in Lead with 52+, also taking 5th place in Speed and 4th in Bouldering. Her teammate Emma HUNT closed the qualification round in 5th position, mostly thanks to her 8.05-seconds performance on the Speed wall, to which she added a 10th place in Bouldering and a 13th place in Lead. Argentina's Valentina AGUADO was one of the four athletes that closed the Bouldering discipline with 4T4Z, eventually finishing in 1st place thanks to a lower number of attempts.

The IFSC Pan American Championships will continue tomorrow with the Men qualification round, starting at 11:00 am (GMT-8:00). Saturday's Women final will kick off at 2:00 pm.
