Claire Buhrfeind and Yoshiyuki Ogata, Youth World Champions

Claire Buhrfeind and Yoshiyuki Ogata have won the Junior category of the Youth World Championships in Innsbruck. Maya Madere, Meichi Narasaki, Johanna Holfeld and Jan-Luca Posch completed the podium.

It was a hard and unpredictable final. The problems were long and on the very limit in terms of difficulty, but only W2 remained unclimbed.

Full results: men & women.
