IFSC Boulder World Cup Haiyang: Another Bronze for Coxsey

The 4th round of the 2015 IFSC Boulder World Cup took place in Haiyang, China this weekend, where Britain's Shauna Coxsey took Bronze once again following her 3rd place in Chongqing, China just last week. The winners were first-time Gold medallists Jongwon Chon of Korea and Petra Klingler of Switzerland.

With three of the top female athletes missing from the event - Anna Stöhr, Alex Puccio and Juliane Wurm - the field was left fairly open. Swiss all-round talent Petra Klingler - a competitor in Lead, Boulder, Speed and even a Gold Medallist in the UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup this year - proved her incredible power by flashing three of the final problems to take first place. 2014 World Cup winner Akiyo Noguchi was close behind with just one more attempt needed to complete three problems.

Shauna climbed well in the finals, topping three boulders and looking on form despite still nursing a finger injury and is currently ranked 3rd in the overall standings. Britain's Leah Crane finished 9th after a great display of climbing in the semi-finals and narrowly missed out on a final position.

The men's event provided equally surprising results with Korea's Jongwon Chon taking his first Gold medal ahead of experienced competitor and seasoned Gold-medal winner Rustam Gelmanov of Russia. France's Alban Levier - a young up and coming athlete who won his first Gold medal in Toronto round just a few weeks ago - took 3rd place ahead of 2015 European Champion and 2014 World Cup winner Jan Hojer and 2014 World Champion Adam Ondra. Jongwon is currently leading the overall ranking with one round to go.
