This past weekend (3rd and 4th July 2010) saw the sixth round of the Bouldering World Cup take place in Sheffield, England. The event drew in in-excess of 20, 000 spectators and was streamed live on the net, as has become common practice of late.

Women's Results

Chloé Graftiaux from Belgium got back to the form she had at Vail, after a disappointing effort at Eindhoven. She placed 1st in the women's finals at Sheffield after just edging 2nd place Alex Johnson from the United States, in 3rd place was Japan's Akiyo Noguchi. Akiyo has had an impressive year with steady placings within the top 10. The competition was a tight one with all of the women on the podium managing to top out the final boulders and only one try separating Graftiaux from Johnson. The results from Sheffield were enough to change the overall rankings a bit with Chloé Graftiaux getting up into 1st place. Anna Stöhr whom had been placing well in previous rounds fell down the overall rankings a bit when she finished 9th.

Results:

1. Chloé Graftiaux (Belgium)

2. Alex Johnson (United States)

3. Akiyo Noguchi (Japan)

4. Natalija Gros (Slovenia)

5. Juliane Wurm (Germany)

Men's Results

Adam Ondra was on form, topping out all of the final problems along with Switzerland's Cedric Lachat whom came in at a respectable 2nd place. In 3rd place was Mykhaylo Shalagin from the Ukraine. In similar style to the women's competition, Kilian Fischhuber the leader of the overall rankings placed a dismal 10th, but still managed to retain his number 1 spot on the overall rankings, but now Ondra has seen himself edge closer with only a 7 point difference in rankings to the leading Fischhuber.
