Austrian Anna Stöhr and Russian Dmitry Sharafutdinov have won the Bouldering World Championships this weekend.

The event - this year based in Arco, Italy - was watched by a huge crowd of over 5000 spectators.

Sharafutnidov flashed three of the four final problems, and climbed the final one on his second attempt. Second placed Adam Ondra also topped out on all the final problems but needed three additional attempts , meaning Sharafutnidov pipped him to the post.

Stöhr qualified for the finals in sixth place, but topped out on all the final problems to take the gold medal. In second place was the young American Sasha DiGiulian, who was making her bouldering competition début. She only entered the bouldering so that she would have a score for the 'combined' ranking of lead and bouldering.

The World Championship lead competition is to be held later this week with a full report coming up on UKC.
