In the Men finals, the Speed discipline was ruled by Ecuador, with Granja setting the best time at 6.30 seconds and Valencia placing 2nd with 6.68. The two other disciplines, instead, were both dominated by USA Climbing’s team, as Bailey and Duffy respectively took the top of the table in Bouldering and Lead. In two days, these eight climbers will battle for the final Olympic quota place available for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
