Janja Garnbret has officially become the Greatest of All Time, adding Olympic Champion to her resume which already features back to back World Championship Golds, eight overall World Cup titles, a clean sweep of the 2019 Boulder season and a triple World Championship win in the same year. Japan's Miho Nonaka and Akiyo Noguchi completed the podium after an emotional final, which was also Noguchi's last competition appearance.
Please can you add the boulder results table. There's a duplicate speed table where boulder should be.
Suggest you look at offical web page https://olympics.com/tokyo-2020/olympic-games/en/results/sport-climbing/oly...
Super happy for Akiyo. So amazing to be at the top for so long. And for Miho overcoming her knee injury. Redemption for team Japan after Tomoa, my personal favorite, failed to medal.
How did they break the tie between Akiyo and Mioslav for bronze? Count back to qualification?
Announcers were truly atrocious and clueless, butchering names and not giving any good explanation of things.
IMHO, boulder route setting wasn't very good in the finals for men or women. Too few tops, too little separation, particularly for men. It shouldn't come down to attempts to zone to separate everyone.
> How did they break the tie between Akiyo and Mioslav for bronze? Count back to qualification?
Nope. It's because Akiyo was ahead of Miroslaw in 2 of the events.
It's really hard for the setters when there's a quarter fewer problems and a third more competitors than normal. Usually there can be one misjudged boulder and it doesn't matter.
Apparently the beta for M3 was to flip the left hand on the good hold and go again with the right (to the hold they were all trying to go with the left to).
