Barcelona (ESP) - The heat of Barcelona seems to have shuffled the cards of the 2011 Boulder World Cup, as the favorites Kilian Fischhuber and Anna Stöhr (AUT) did not make it to the podium in the competition set by Reini Fichtinger.
In the women's field, Akiyo Noguchi was the only one to complete all four problems, while the second ranked Alex Puccio just sent 2, although being very close the the top of the second boulder. Third the French Melissa Le Neve, with 2 tops in Finals and one top less than Puccio in the Semis.
Guillame Glairon Mondet seized his victory and the gold medal by flashing the fourth problem. Behind him, two Russians, Rustam Gelmanov and Dmitry Sharafutdinov, the only one to make it on problem number four together with the French winner.
Anna Stöhr and Kilian Fischhuber maintain the lead of the WC Ranking 2011, although their advantage on respectively Noguchi and Puccio has been reduced. Sheffield next week will give an hint of who could gain the World Cup 2011: after Sheffield, the Boulder World Cup will take a break until the last competition of the year, in Munich.
Unfortunately this video is less attractive than some other clips too since there was no light on the wall. The footage of the GoPros and other small chip cameras was pretty much unusable. (it would have been very helpful if some of the responsible people had been to some of the previous BWCs to learn a thing or 2) The whole event was doomed when they decided to do it in this concrete sauna imho. Route setting and of course some performances where the few highlights of this event under "Spanish boulder competitions dictatorship"...
