amazing to have Stasa as a comentator :) Adame great job!!! and we have yet another proof the 4 minute rule is stupid, Akiyo you were great :) if the problems were a bit more old school, and not so much jumping, you would've made the podium for sure :)

When Stasa is done competing, you need to hire her as Matt’s permanent cohost.

Stasa should comment more comps, she's so good in it. You get so much specific information from her. makes it easier to understand whats going on.

Interesting how people see things from different perspectives: in men's boulder 1 the commentator said Yoshi's right hand slipped off of the top pinch grip hold and he got it back on, it looked to me like he felt it slipping and deliberately pulled it back hard and shot it back up for re-position, proactive rather than reactive. - Mark Whatever.

Spoiler alert! Generation change? So many big names who didn't make finals, Akiyo not on the podium for the first time in forever! Oriane getting silver in her first senior comp. And Grossman outperforming Rabatou.

Staša is a really strong climber and was great as a commentator tonight! Great inputs and a lot of interesting facts she gave. Matt was quite good as well (there is a space for improvements) but I have missed commentary of Charlie Boscoe as he is sort of signature sign of those IFSC world cup broadcasts. Even, I am often disappointed watching other comps where he is not commenting on them. I think that Charlie and Matt could make stable commentary team. Staša will be commentary legend when she is finished with competing, but she has not finished yet!

I got to know Staša from this very good world cup in...Moscow( I dunno, couldn't find it, if you've seen it, you know which one. It was a roller-coaster...) as a very dedicated and emotional and motivated climber and it's just stunning to get to know her analytical side through this commentary. Shows the beauty of the sport.

I laughed out loud when Janja stood up on the horrible sloped slab hold that every single person had tried and failed to stand on. "How's she gonna do it...oh okay...just stand up." Also Oriene reminds me of one of the sand snakes from GOT. She's wicked talented for her age. She is 6 years younger than Janja so she's got plenty of time to catch up.

3:24:18 I swear she's like a cat sizing up that jump and lining herself up for it. Spectacular competition, I'm hella impressed with the youngin Bertone.
Milla Cabral

There's is actually a technique to swinging from a hold or bar without any initial momentum. There are some good videos online about it, but you essentially do a leg raise and then kick out pushing your hips forwards and up, keeping your arms and shoulders pretty relaxed. What most climbers fail to do also is arching on the swing back and then snapping into a "dish" or hollow body position at the top of the back swing. If you practice this on a regular bar and understand the timing of it all it's actually pretty easy. Flexed arms and trying to swing by only flapping your legs actually kills your momentum and takes away control.

Milla Cabral

Ok, they really should have to put a softer mat down on problems like M3. That fall is huge and they're just flopping from a huge height horizontally onto a mat that barely absorbs the impact. I wouldn't be surprised if a few of them actually got a mild concussion from that, it looked like Takata had a bit of whiplash there :/ It would help a lot if there was a big cushioned gymnastics style mat right under that part of the climb.

I think boulders should go back and be designed more as climbing problems than ninja warrior exercises. They say they do it to to make it more entertaining for lay people: they should educate people instead; who wants to see ninja warrior moves should watch ninja warrior shows. I must add that having to watch the climbers dealing with subtle balancing moves over and over is also really boring, imo.

I am the only one not enjoying those routes? big volumes for the non-initiated tv watchers can follow (but with little holds in the big volume so it is doable..) flat walls....no relief just inclination changing a lil bit...same problems aaaaall the times (damn you coordination...you are sooo predictable!) I know i sound like an old timer....but the problems are soooo repetitive!! AND PLEASE THE CAMERA WORK! are we going to be cursed till the end of time? lol PS great commentary...and great competitors, don't get me wrong...

Can you actually go back and finish boulders after the comp? Cos that would bother me to no end 😂 Also Oriane...wow, one to watchout for!

When I hear the point made around the 56min mark, that science says chalk actually decreases friction and is therefore only useful to dry your hands - I have to completely agree with that sentiment, I never immediately chalk, I always wait for my hands to get really sweaty, because it definitely feels less "grippy" having powder between your skin and the wall.

Can somebody explain why Oriane placed ahead of Natalia? They have the same number of zones and tops, but Natalia has 17 top attempts to Oriane's 18. It seems like Natalia should have placed second. What happened/what am I not understanding?
13boehn 15 days ago
final score was: natalia 2t10 4z7 oriane 2t8 4z10 oriane was only behind on zone attemps, but got the tops in with two fewer tries than natalia. top attempts are deciding in this instance; livestream commentary and graphics were not accurate.

It always amazes me how a boulder can seem to have a impossible move, then once you have done it once you stick it every time.
Michael Brändel

I didn't like the camera at all, although it was much better than in the semi-finals (of course there were no concurrent athletes performing, so fortunately no cut-over needed). In particular, the angle from the side which they often chose I find very frustrating because you cannot really follow the movements and body position. From time to time it would be ok to have few seconds with this angle to get a glimpse of the steepness of the wall but not longer. I wish they will have a more professional direction in the Olympics with some understanding of what and how Climbers want to see.

I really don’t understand, why did oriane come in second? She had more attempts than Natalia same tops and zones. Even the commentators are saying she’s third until they show the final result then she’s all of a sudden second? What’s going on here? What am I missing?

13boehn 15 days ago
natalia 2t4z - 10t 7z oriane 2t4z - 8t 10z basically, oriane was only behind on zone attempts, but had two fewer tries to get the 2 tops. The top-attempts are deciding in this instance. livestream graphics and commentary were incorrect; once oriane got the zone on boulder 4 she had 2nd place, and the amount of tries to reach the zone would not have mattered.
megatonante 17 days ago
why must they touch with both feet some particular volume? In some problems it really seems a useless rule. For example in the second women problem, they must every single time touch with both feet the volume of the jug.

@Pranay Muchandi interesting, makes sense
Pranay Muchandi
Pranay Muchandi 15 days ago
The commentators addressed this. It is simply so that you can't get any momentum for the swing from that initial jump. So you have to generate the swing from a static position thus adding to the difficulty.

Never heard Stasa as a commentator before but damn I agree with the rest of you, she was real good! Respected her comment on how important it is for a climber to master all the aspects of climbing. This is supposed to be the hardest comps in the world, an athlete can't just complain that it doesn't suit their style and is therefore bad, it's supposed to push your limits in every form!
