This weekend (10th and 11th of May 2014) will see the third round of the IFSC Bouldering World Cup held in Grindelwald, Switzerland.
Competing for Great Britain will be Shauna Coxsey, myself (Mina), Dave Barrans, Matt Cousins, Diane Merrick and Michaela Tracy.
In the 2014 season Shauna is ranked 3rd and I am ranked 10th (the others have yet to compete this year so do not yet have a 2014 ranking).
The qualification round will take place on Saturday, with the men climbing in the morning and the women in the afternoon. On Sunday, the semi- finals and finals will take place and these will be live streamed at the below times at IFSC-climbing.org.
Semi-Finals: 9.30am (UK time)
Finals: 3.30pm (UK time)
