Having chanced to way up early this morning, I caught the livestream of qualification round of the bouldering world cup from Mumbai. The round was fascinating — it was good to see Katja Kadic doing well and to see Alexey Rubtsov making it through to finals. Shauna Coxey didn't look greatly troubled, picking up the overall competition win partway through — with Janja Gambret not competing, she only needed to finish 9th to clinch it — with Chon Jongwon looking very strong in the men's competition.

With the finals on at a reasonable time, I decided to watch the stream while defrosting the fridge — a task that has needed doing for quite some time. The results were spot on, with good separation between the clinmbers and the definitive result going right down to the wire in the best possible way — I've really warmed to the four minutes flat format — it makes the finish more exciting; it keeps everything to time; and it allows the setters to create problems with a moves that might have been used as rests in the old five plus format.
