Shauna is currently ranked in 3rd overall (last 12 months), I am ranked 10th and Jen and Orrin are unranked as this is their first senior World Cup.

The qualification round will take place on Saturday (men in the morning and women in the afternoon) while Semis and Finals will be held on Sunday. This year, the IFSC is no longer broadcasting the Qualification round but times for the semi-finals and finals are below:

Finals: 12.30pm UK time (4.30pm Baku time).

These can be viewed on the IFSC Site.
