Shauna Coxsey has qualified in 1st place for finals on Tuesday after the Combined qualification round. In an exciting twist, due to the fact that Japan has 4 athletes qualified for the Combined final but can only take 2 Olympic spots, all 4 athletes from other countries in the final plus the 9th and 10th place competitors are guaranteed an Olympic ticket for consideration by their National Olympic Committee. Shauna qualified in 1st after placing 14th in Speed, 1st in Boulder and 3rd in Lead.
The first 7 female Sport Climbing Olympians in Tokyo 2020 - pending selection by their respective NOCs - will be (final ranking order to be decided in Tuesday's final):
- Shauna Coxsey (GBR)
- Janja Garnbret (SLO)
- Petra Klingler (SUI)
- Aleksandra Miroslaw (POL)
- The two highest-placing Japanese climbers, to be decided on Tuesday.
- Brooke Raboutou (USA) (9th place)
- Jessica Pilz (AUT) (10th place) (takes unused host quota if Japan select two athletes from Hachioji, or Hachioji quota if they select just one from this event - to be confirmed in next few weeks)
Shauna placed 14th in Speed, 1st in Boulder and 3rd in Lead to qualify in 1st place. Her reaction on Facebook was one of disbelief:
The battle for the two hotly contested Japanese places in the women's event will be between Akiyo Noguchi, Ai Mori, Futaba Ito and Miho Nonaka. Watch the women's Combined final live on Tuesday from 7:20am UK time.
The men's Combined qualification takes place tomorrow.
Stay tuned for Charlie Boscoe's Combined report, and some comment from Shauna...
