This is the first gold medal for both Fujii and Nonaka. The Japanese team, which already had really good results in Chongqing two weeks ago, broke the bank tonight and won 4 medals including 2 golds.

The final for the women was very hard. Just Nonaka managed to get more than a single top and on the last two problems most climbers didn’t even get the bonus (which makes Retschy’s flash of the last problem even more impresssive).

The problems for the men were more reasonable, 4 climbers got 3 tops. Fujii and Narasaki dominated the round.

After Mumbai Fujii leads the men’s overall. On the female side Coxsey is still in first place, but all her direct competitors have gotten much closer.

  1. Thought this was a really good event and an exciting final. The organization looked pretty good for the most part and the route setting was really good.

    Great to see Miho win finally – she seems to have podiumed a lot in the past so good to see her in first place. The Japanese have 3 new first place climbers in just 2 weeks and all look really strong.

    I wonder if the high temps favour the Asian climbers more. Shauna Coxey said on her Twitter feed that she couldn’t handle the heat.

    Thought Melissa La Neve might take her first but she seemed to spend too much time on the last problem changing shoes.

    • Great to see Miho win and great to see Monika getting a silver. But when Melissa finally wins a gold the internet is going to collapse. I think we are all dying to see her win, she’s one of the most charismatic climbers ever.
      I think the performance of the Japanese team has less to do with the temperature and lots to do with the relative lack of pressure they are feeling after Kazo and, of course, they are very very talented.
      It was a definitely a good event (I had my doubts, I was afraid of India being China 2.0) and a good final.
      Thanks for the comment!

  2. Tomoa is the new Kilian!
