GARNBRET AND NOGUCHI TOP THE WOMEN’S QUALIFICATION ROUND

Following the men’s qualification earlier today in Meiringen, Switzerland, this afternoon saw the women take to the mats, with 70 athletes competing in the round.

Boulder World Champion Janja Garnbret, of Slovenia, cruised her way to the top of the results table, achieving five flashes and thus, a perfect score. Japan’s Akiyo Noguchi bagged five tops and five zones during the qualification, earning her a spot alongside Garnbret at the joint top of the table.

Storming onto the senior circuit, 16-year-old Oriane Bertone of France was last to climb in today’s competition due to it being her debut adult World Cup, yet walked away in joint third position with the USA’s Natalia Grossman, putting her in good stead for tomorrow’s semi-final.

Switzerland’s Petra Klingler missed out on the semi-final by just one place, with Andrea Kümin being the only Swiss athlete to achieve a spot in the women’s semi-final on home soil.
