To celebrate end of school year and life in general we decided to go to Vail Colorado and watch IFSC Bouldering World Cup live! Here are some photos and reflections.
Canadian Jason Holowach finished 20th just couple weeks ago in Toronto, but this time he got to finals, nice job! Here is fresh article about him: http://gripped.com/news/words-with-canadian-world-cup-competitor-jason-holowach
The Most Entertaining Climber Award goes to Peter Dixon:
Megan Mascarenas is new Champion! I think we saw it coming watching her last few years in Youth and Open US comps. Megan is strong and has cool head for her young age. Congratulations!
Dima, did you hear how loud we cheered for you? 4th place, but you could have done better…
Some routes only Adam Ondra could finish, he is amazing climber for sure, but he seems to have few weak spots, he could not grab last hold on two routes in finals, both moves were dynamic and required quick reaction to stick big spherical sloper/dome. Need gymnastic trainer?
Anna Stöhr suffered a finger injury while climbing on the second problem and had to withdraw from the competition, very unfortunate.
Alex Puccio also suffered an injury while warming up in qualifiers.
If not for Megan then Akiyo Noguchi could have won the comp.
Nathaniel Coleman is 2nd and proves our point https://psyched2climb.com/2015/06/01/nathaniel-coleman-is-silver-medalist-in-toronto
Sean McColl made to finals and looked pretty strong.
