Miho Nonaka and Jernej Kruder win Adidas Rockstars 2018

The final of Adidas Rockstars has been, as expected, a great show. The problems were significantly harder than in the semis but they kept the dynamic style. Miho Nonaka won her first Adidas Rockstars title in the super final against Alex Puccio and Jernej Kruder secured his second title racing against Jongwon Chon (who’s been second 3 times!).




Nonaka, Puccio, Kruder and Chon were in the lead throughout the final. Nonaka and Puccio were the only ones capable of topping the first problem and only Kruder and Chon stuck the hard move to the lip on the second.

If last year Narasaki and Chon started the super final with a fist bump, tonight Chon and Kruder started with a little dance and a butt bump. The chemistry between these two is quite obvious and they both celebrated on top of the super boulder like the good friends they are.

This victory is the perfect ending for Nonaka and Kruder’s impressive seasons.

  1. Could you not announce the winners of competitions in the headlines please. It’s worth remembering that not everyone watches these events live and so they don’t want to know the result before they get the chance to watch them. Thanks.

    I can avoid announcing the winners, but that defeats the purpose. The goal is to inform about the results. Those who want to avoid knowing the news should not check new sites (10min after every comp the results are all over social media anyway).
