The Russian and the Czech triumph at the 25th Rock Master Climbing event. Tauporn and Ernst are silver, ahead of Schubert and Digiulian. The 2011 Climbing World Championship closes in Arco. Russia wins the national team overall ranking

2011 Climbing World Championship has drawn down its curtains today in Arco, northern Italy. After having assigned the Lead, Speed, Boulder and first ever Paraclimbing medals during the past 10 days, a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Rock Master has taken place this afternoon at the Climbing Stadium. The spectacular ‘Duel’ competition crowned Russian Yana Chereshneva and Czech Adam Ondra new Rock Master’s gold. The Duel competition is both Lead and Speed, and the top 16 Lead male and female specialists battle it out along two identical Lead routes.

2011 Lead world champions Eiter and Puigblanque were kicked out in quarter finals by German Tauporn and American Digiulian. Among women, the other semifinalists were Austria’s Ernst, Russia’s Chereshneva and Slovenia’s Markovic. In men’s, French Romain, vice world champion Jakob Schubert and Adam Ondra made it to the semis.

While Ernst easily got rid of Digiulian, Chereshneva had to work hard to win Markovic. In the final climb, the 21-year old Russian climber flied to the top and defeated Austrian. Sasha Digiulian got bronze.

In men’s semis, nothing to do for Romain against Teutonic Tauporn. Austrian Schubert did his best against Ondra, but the Czech wanted gold (at least this one!) at all costs. And eventually grabbed it, Tauporn second and Schubert third.

The national team overall ranking of the 2011 IFSC Climbing World Championship reads Russian Federation first with 191 points, the US second (167 points) and Slovenia third (164 points). Russians won 3 golds with Dmitry Sharafutdinov (boulder men), Maria Krasavina (speed women) and with the Team Speed trio Sinitsyn, Alekseeva, Vaitsekhovsky.

The last combined gold medals (Lead + Boulder + Speed) has been handed today to Adam Ondra and Sasha Digiulian.
