Just three weeks after winning the 2014 Bouldering World Championships, Adam Ondra secured the 2014 Lead World Championships in Gijón, Spain with a narrow victory over Ramon Julian. After taking a few years off from competing to climb the hardest routes in the world, Ondra put the world on notice that he was focusing on competitions this year. Despite a few early hiccups in some of the Lead World Cups, he has thus far managed to win one Lead World Cup, take 2nd at a Bouldering World Cup and now the incredible double in the World Championships. This kid might be good.
For the women it was South Korean Jain Kim securing her first World Championship with a stellar performance. Reigning two-time U.S. National champion Delaney Miller finished in 16th.
