Latest Results

World Cup in Villars (Switzerland)
Anak wasn't tired at all when she was near the top in the final route. Unfortunately she makes a little mistake and falls. But still good enough for a bronze medal. Watch her in the final route (Anak starts at 1 hour 52 min 18 sec): https://youtu.be/VjOL83RGvDk?t=6738

World Cup in Chamonix

Anak wanted to be too precise on a move in the semifinal and falls too early. Still good enough for a place in the final. Unfortunately the final route is too easy and she tops with ease as do 2 other climbers. Countback to the semifinal earns her a bronze medal again. Watch her in the final route (Anak starts at 1 hour 47 min 59 sec): https://youtu.be/h54_akkODQY?t=6479

Comment From Anak on Instagram

The style of the routes changes dramatically. The route setters are instructed to make sure the final is a great show for the public. They set traps in the routes and it is not always the best climber that wins. For the athletes the competition is lost and they feel they are abused. Pray that there will be a honest competition in future events. Read the post by her Instagram about this problem at https://www.instagram.com/p/BWh27-PBPNQ ... .verhoeven.
