Note that in 4 of the 6 categories (Male A, Male and Female B and Male Juniors) Japan won every single medal. It looks like we have Japan Team for many years to come. Also, the three medalists om the Male Junior category, have been in senior IFSC Finals.

Meichi Narasaki, Tomoa’s Brother, won the gold medal both in Bouldering and Lead (and he made finals in Vail a month ago).
