IFSC Lead World Cup Finals! – WOMEN’S Results
Austrian Johanna Ernst was the only girl to turn the corner at the top of the wall and fell only two moves shy of the anchors to take the win. She maintained a tie for first through the qualifier and semifinal rounds and climbed with authority to her first place finish. Congratulations Johanna!
Slovenian Mina Markovic in her amazing blue pants came into finals in a tie for first with Johanna Ernst. Mina climbed well, making her way around the corner near the top of the wall where the rest of the girls had fallen and then falling a few holds short of Johanna's highpoint. She looked solid throughout the comp, though on the final she got a little out of sequence and seemed like she might be tiring before pulling it together and magically making her way past most of the competitor's high points. Most of the competitors fell off moving around the to the right corner near the headwall (above the last green volume). Fellow Slovenian Maja Vidmar reached this point with good strength and control and actually controlled a hold around the corner but apparently it was out of sequence and not scored and before she could get back in sequence a foot slip caused her to fall off. Her previous scores kept her in 4th place overall. Mina took 2nd.
3rd place went to Japanese climber Momoka Oda. Momoka looked strong and in good control until suddenly on the traverse right under the headwall she began to look tired. Her final score for this problem was technically 42-, the same as Maja’s as well as 5th place Angela Eiter and 6th place Akiyo Noguchi, but countbacks determined their final order.
Sasha DiGiulian, the only American female in finals, climbed well and fell at the same move as the others, but without slapping the usable surface on hold 42 she ended up getting scored at hold 41 and placed 7th. Finally, France’s Charlotte Durif fell a few holds earlier on the rightward traverse and ended up in 8th with 38- points.
Women's Podium. Momoka Oda in 3rd, Mina Markovic in 2nd, and Johanna Ernst in 1st!
