WYCH Innsbruck 2017 Junior Boulder Finals
It was on. The first of the big kids finals. Junior events always put on a show and over the last few years since it’s inclusion at the Youth world Champs in Arco, Junior Bouldering finals has been a real blue ribbon event!
It was a great round, one that looked open until the last problem in the girls, which American Claire Buhrfiend came out and just nailed, giving her a clear and well deserved win over compatriot Maya Madere, with young German Johanna Holfeld coming in third.
In the guy’s, rising World Cup star and World Games 2017 champion Yoshiyuki Ogata got the job done, beating out fellow Japanese star Meichi Narasaki and local favorite Jan-Luca Posch who had to settle for bronze.
