Jacopo Larcher - Strange Heroes
La Sportiva represented by its athletes on the podiums of Arco. Adam Ondra and Julia Chanourdie winners in the duel, Jakob Schubert and Jain Kim, conqueer the gold medal in the IFSC World Cup Lead stage.
Another Rock Master Festival has turned to the end, with 4 days of highest-level- competitions and the best champions of our times giving their best, in the amazing location of Garda Trentino. Arco continues to attract the most elite athletes in sport climbing. In a competitive field, athletes worked hard for a spot on the podium at the fourth IFSC World Cup of the Lead and the Rock Master festival competition.
The women’s Lead final was defined by a challenging technical line of volumes midway, followed by consecutive dynamic moves. Anne-Sophie Koller of Switzerland was first to complete the crux moves and push into the concluding section. Korean Jain Kim later matched the high point, displaying her smooth style of climbing shown all season. 2017 stars Anak Verhoeven and Janja Garnbret finished the round. Verhoeven stalled at the first dyno and placed 6th, and Garnbret fell at the second dyno for third place, ending her winning streak at three consecutive IFSC Lead World Cup wins. With her victory at Arco and third podium, Kim moved into second place in the season rankings behind Garnbret. Koller, the runner-up, won the first medal of her IFSC World Cup career.
In the men’s final, numerous slopers required open-hand power and efficient footwork of the eight finalists. Austrian Jakob Schubert wowed the crowd by fighting past the previous high point and battling the volcano holds on the roof before the upper panel. His teammate Max Rudigier also pushed into the overhanging section, falling just one move shy of Schubert’s mark. Once again two titans of sport climbing concluded the final round, with Adam Ondra of the Czech Republic and German Alexander Megos last to climb. Ondra fought the pump to match Rudigier’s score, and Megos fell early at a lower dyno. Schubert won his first Gold medal since 2014, and Ondra placed second on countback to qualifications.
Same protagonists fight for the exclusive competition formula ‘invented’ at Arco that even this year has become the final fixture of the Festival. Competing against each other on two difficult, identical and parallel routes, Jakob Schubert and Adam Ondra has been (again) the finalists of the Duel 2017. Tactics, determination, control and explosive desire to take to the wire, to the very last hold, resulted in the Ondra's victory with a rush on the great wall of the Rock Master Climbing Stadium!
After a first round of qualifications and a series of direct elimination rounds, French team's Julia Chanourdie and Janja Garnbret faced the last one for the female Duel title. The Slovenian, like others before her, had some problems on the roof in the final part of the route, letting the La Spo ambassador Julia, reaching the top as first. In third place, Molly Thompson-Smith beats Belgian in the final Anak Verhoeven ranked fourth.
