OK, I know why all the plastic footage, well I spend most of my time training on plastic and I like it. I hope you all do too.

A great final round at the IFSC Bouldering World Cup of Vail assigned the victory to the Austrian team, with Fischhuber and Stöhr on the highest step of the podium. The atmosphere in Vail, in the framework of the well known Teva Mountain Games, was vibrant with excitement and expectation for what promised to be a perfect competition, and the cheers of the audience accompanied the athletes all the time, psyching them up.

Kilian Fischhuber mastered the finals by flashing all boulders, while his Russian rival, Dmitry Sharafutdinov, made one attempt too much in sending all four problems. Third, with a bronze medal, the German Jonas Baumann, with two tops in 4 attempts.
Anna Stöhr, in great shape, was the only woman to top all four boulders, while Alex Puccio (USA) and Melissa Le Neve sent only 3 in respectively 3 and 8 attempts.

Kilian now is very close to the first ranked in the Boulder WC Ranking 2011, the Russian Sharafutdinov; Anna leads at a distance the women ranking, with Akiyo Noguchi (JPN) in second position.
