This weekend (20th and 21st June 2014) will see the seventh round of the IFSC Bouldering World Cup held in Haiyang, China. This is the first time all three IFSC disciplines; Boulder, Lead and Speed, will be competing together.
Competing for Great Britain will be Shauna Coxsey and Nathan Phillips.
Shauna is currently ranked in 1st place in the IFSC World Cup and hopefully she can continue to climb well to maintain this position - good luck Shauna!
The qualification round took place early this morning for the women, with Shauna qualifying in second place. The men's qualifiers take place later today. On Saturday, the semi-finals and finals will take place and these will be live streamed at the below times on the IFSC website.
