In der Wiege des Wettkampfkletterns schlugen die österreichischen Kletter-Asse im Leadweltcup zu: Jakob Schubert eroberte vor dem tschechischen Spitzenkletterer Adam Ondra in Arco seinen ersten Weltcupsieg in dieser Saison.
The marathon Youth World Championships in Arco ended with a special edition of its famous Rock Master. A single event involving the best 8 + 8 athletes in the climbing competition circuit. The competition couldn’t have been anything other than the Lead Duel.
On Friday 04/09/2015 during the 10th Arco Rock Legends celebration in Arco, Italy, Alexander Megos received the Salewa Rock Award while Adam Ondra won the La Sportiva Competition Award. The prestigious Dryarn Climbing Ambassador by Aquafil prize was handed to John Ellison, founder of CAC - Climbers Against Cancer.
At 9:30 sharp the starting whistle blows. It’s an important moment. The first ever Boulder Finals in the history of the World Youth Championships, kicked off by the girls in the Female Youth B (Under 16) and Youth A (Under 18) categories.
There’s no point denying it. We’re in Arco. And so two Italians in the running for the Youth B World Champion title cannot leave the home crowd indifferent. Also because the first, Filip Schenk, dominated the first two heats.
