La Sportiva Legends Only 2017

© Björn Pohl

Everyone who was there would probably agree this year's edition of the La Sportiva Legends Only was the best one ever. Great climbers, problems, music and mc's.

This was definitely a night to remember, but I won't say anything about who walked away with the €5000, you'll have to see for yourself in Video.

2h 46m?!?!? Is there not an edited highlight version?

I think it's fine to announce the winners in a post comp report of the event. It's up to people not read to it if they intend watching the video. Just don't announce it in the headlines where they're that much harder to avoid. I'm sure the atmosphere was great at the event. But from the armchair, video watching perspective I preferred the previous women's event. Janja's total dominance was both unexpected and extraordinary. But overall I think this is cool event to have on the competition calendar, well organized with an interesting format that's nicely different from other events.

Agreed, I personally would prefer a write-up of the event and an announcement of the winners as I usually don't have time to watch the videos. Perhaps someone who has watched it would be kind enough to give a synopsis for the rest of us?
