Boulder World Cup 2014 - final report

This is our last Boulder World Cup 2014 report about the event in Haiyang, China and Laval, France. Please check out our gallery with the best shots of the 2014 Boulder World Cup too!

It should be noted that the World Cup in Haiyang was a very weak one, taking place in a ghost town without any real spectators. As a result (?), route setting was weak too, but these issues are the subject of another analysis in the future, let’s talk about the bouldering instead for now!
Before these two world cups, Jan Hojer and Dmitry Sharafutdinov were just a view points apart, as were Shauna Coxsey and Akiyo Noguchi.
Jan and Dmitri were looking forward to a friendly death match when Dmitri ran into some personal problems that clearly were not helping his bouldering. For the first time in ages he failed to qualify for the finals.
Especially at the end of the season Shauna and Akiyo climbed clearly better than the other girls through all the rounds.
Haiyang was won by Akiyo Noguchi and Jan Hojer.

The fifth stop of the IFSC World Cup season 2013 celebrated a big climbing party at the Marktplatz in Innsbruck from May 16th to 18th. The finals fantastic result in black-red-golden. Jule Wurm, who already finished second at the European Championships 2010 in Innsbruck and local heroine Anna Stöhr, leader after the semi-finals, fought an exciting duel: Both women topped out on all four final Boulder problems, in closing one attempt decided about gold, silver and Jule Wurms first victory in 2013!

First World Cup win ever for Jan Hojer
In the men’s competition Austria’s Kilian Fischhuber, the previous year’s winner, was the only athlete flashing three out of four final problems, but didn't score in number three (no top, no bonus) what put him in place three in the end. Gold went to Germany's Jan Hojer, reigning world champion Dmitrii Sharafutdinov gained place two and therewith his fourth podium of the season. Its worth noticing that all the climbers in the German bouldering team bouldered really well during those days, it seems that we like the air in Innsbruck!

After this great competition weekend in Austria the IFSC Bouldering World Cup is moving overseas: Toronto will be the venue of the next World Cup stop on June 1-2! All results and further informations on www.ifsc-climbing.org. Stay tuned for our report soon and find a short clip about the finals below...
