Wow, really enjoyed that. From Janja falling off low down which opened up the final to the actual wall feeling like it was old school. Brilliant setting in women’s final and I loved the way they made the climbers down climb to move on. It seemed to really throw a spanner in everyone’s flow. Even the jumpy bits weren’t really jumpy and could be gotten statically. Fun to watch
>"this year Saturday was qualifying day and then we had semis and finals on Sunday"
From a youtube spectator point of view this is a bit of a pain. Semis and finals is an awful lot of telly to do in one day. Given the modern addiction to social media it's hard to get to see it all before you've stumbled accross the results. Generally when it's this format I end up skipping watching the finals, which is a shame after all the effort that goes into recording the show.
Is there any intel on how the post World Championships Olympic paper work panned out? Did all the countries Olympic committees respond as expect, accepting their Olympic qualification spots? I'm guessing Japan may have been the exception and as predicted will have only accepted one male and one female place at this time...
