Anyone know the maths of the point system?
With Akiyo Noguchi seemingly currently in unstoppable form how likely is it that Shauna can hold her off. Would two more second places for Shauna be enough or does Noguchi need to slip up?
This and one other round to go, right?
You can drop one score so effectively Shauna is 15 points ahead of Akiyo.
100 points for 1st place, then 80, 65, 55, 51, 47 so Shauna needs to beat Akiyo in one of the remaining 2 events, unless they both have bad results.
I've been enjoying watching the comps online. Happy to see a Brit winning but I can't quite bring myself to *not* support any of the other competitors. I just like watching the fantastic bits of climbing from whoever is on the wall.
I've been at every event apart from the current one, it is a real privilege to watch :-)
The calculation is here:
I worked out some permutations but Graham has expressed it much more concisely.
Do you know if Shauna had a particular injury at Vail that caused the slight drop in her good form?
Did it look like climbers that had had a chance to acclimatise to the altitude faired better? Were all the main contenders in the same boat as far as acclimatisation time was concerned?
Never previously been interested in comps but this World Cup has really gripped my sh*t.
It's a shame that the British comp. is on at the same time ,I'll be going cross-eyed switching channels...
Agree 100% with all that JLS said and thanks for the scoring pointers Graeme, I was a bit lost at times :-)
Problem with her right knee
Nearly everyone was on the same plane from Toronto to Denver and most went up to Vail on the Wednesday.
I suspect that fatigue was also kicking in, 6 comps in 7 weeks took it out of me and I wasn't competing. Just wondering whether Akiyo only travelling west helped her on the jet lag front
No,I'd not seen that.Thanks a lot.
OK Graeme,think I get it now.If Shauna beats Costa Rica and Anna loses to Japan will we win on goal difference?
<stubs spliff out and leaves room>
So... Akiyo Noguchi now five points ahead of Shauna Coxsy with one round to go.
I couldn't find links to the usual replay video. Pressumably some sort of internet logistics problem with the event being in China.
The replays for Chongqing only went up after the 247.tv crew got back home - the internet in the hotel was painfully slow and as often as not the temporary network set up for the webcast disappears straight after the event
