Fischhuber, Stöhr Win 2011 Bouldering World Cup

After a brief hiatus the 2011 Bouldering World Cup circuit held its final event in Munich, Germany over the weekend.  Russians dominated the men’s event with Dimitry Sharafutdinov flashing all four problems followed by fellow countrymen Rustam Gelmanov and Alexey Rubstov finishing in 2nd and 3rd respectively.  For the women it was Slovenia’s Mina Markovic who topped out three boulders to take the win.

Going into the event Kilian Fishhuber had already locked up his 5th overall title while Anna Stöhr and Akiyo Noguchi were separated by a mere five points.  In the end it was Stöhr who would take the overall title on the strength of her 3rd place finish in Munich while Noguchi’s 6th place finish was good enough to hold on to 2nd overall.

American Alex Puccio completed her first full season on the World Cup circuit with an 8th place finish in Munich.  This finish, along with a consistent performance throughout the season that saw her make finals in 7 out of the 9 events, solidified her 3rd place standing in the overall rankings and put an American on the podium for the first time ever.

    Watched this live. Generally a good webcast minus the usual issue of the announcers having nothing to talk about. It was almost scary how hard Dimitry crushed the finals problems. I thought the setting was generally really good (very euro style) with the notable exception of the woman’s #3 problem which none of the athletes were able to even get to the bonus hold on (how was that problem intended to be done?!). Anyway, looking forward to next year and seeing some more familiar names on the podium…
