Both Retschy and Firnenburg have been competing at an international level for a long time (since 2007 and 2009), winning many medals in youth competitions. As seniors, they’ve made finals in several IFSC events. Retschy won the silver medal in Navi Mumbai last year.

One of the best competitors in Germany, Alma Bestvater, couldn’t take part in the championships due to a mistake by her regional federation (or so I understood, the issue is quite convoluted).

Hojer and Retschy will have little rest before competing in the Vail Bouldering World Cup this Friday.

Here’s the replay of the final:
