  1. I had mixed feelings about the commentary. In the semi-finals I found it a bit annoying, I didn’t think there was good chemistry between the commentators and they didn’t seem well informed on the competitors’ backgrounds or their names.
    The final was much better and I really enjoyed the laid back friendly style, particularly of the American guy – who has a great voice.
    Janja’s mistake misreading that one problem was one I often think can happen to the most talented competitors. She saw a way to climb the boulder, realised it was possible and was then locked into trying that sequence. But that was not the easiest way to do it. Fanny Gibert’s beta was so much better.

      It was surprising to see Janja trying that failing beta time and again. I think she wasn’t in full comp mode yet.
