Kranj IFSC World Cup 2016 Semi Finals
Welcome to The Circuit’s album of the semi-final round from the final Lead World Cup of 2016.
It was a challenging route for the women seeing progressively higher points reached before the final climber out, Slovenia’s amazing Janja Garnbret succeeded in topping the route. The other real standout was young Hannah Schubert of Austria who followed her strong showing at Youth Worlds in China with a great climb to 4th, taking her to her first ever senior final.
The men’s route was perhaps under-set, seeing 6 climbers successfully topping the route and the other two finalists falling from the finish.
The great story of the weekend is the two amazing climbers who have announced their retirement from World Cup competition have both made it through to finals. It gives us, as fans of the sport, one final chance to see Urban Primozic and Yuka Kobayashi in action.
Check out the album to see all the action and get ready for tonights final! Also remember you can click through to our Smugmug page to download any of the photos for non-commercial social media use.
