Is there a reason why points are calculated so that lower is better? Just seems odd when in pretty much every other point-based sport it's the other way round.

I think it's a reasonably difficult method of calculating points already, so keeping the system of 1st place getting 1 point, 20th gets 20 seems a bit more logical that 1st place getting 20 points and 20th getting 1 point etc, moreso in the middle places... hear shouts at the telly from climbers mum...'13th place gets how many points again?' Who's winning?!

It looks to me it's because the speed climbing qualifier is used to seed the speed climbing final, and Bassa is seeded 1st, Ondra 8th, so they would be drawn against each other.

Is each speed round best of one? Or best of 3?
