Within 10 days the Porsche-Arena was turned into a climbing arena. With very selective boulders the field was cut down in two rounds to 6 men and 6 women. 3,500 enthusiastic spectators came to celebrate the twelve finalists from nine countries on Saturday evening.
Pumped up by punkrockband Badasstics, European Beatbox Champion Robeat and the extreme sports DJs Chainsaw and Sungod, the athletes went beyond themselves and delivered extra power when there was actually none left. Their spectacular, powerful and dynamic moves enthused the crowds.
In a thrilling superfinal on a dual boulder, on which the two best athletes climb simultaneously an identical route, the 2014 Overall World Cup Champion Akiyo Noguchi (JPN) and the reigning Climbing World Champion Overall, Sean McColl (CAN) claimed the title adidas ROCKSTARS 2014, ahead of lead expert Mina Marcovic from Slovenia and 18-year old Jongwon Chon from Korea.
