1st WUC Sport Climbing - Update

SHANGHAI - On 14 October, it was a rainy day in Shanghai, but the rain never cut down the enthusiasm of the athletes. The main competitions today were men’s and women’s Lead Semi-finals and men’s and women’s Bouldering Semi-finals.

At ten o’clock in the morning, the men’s and women’s Lead Semi-finals started. When the pregame warm-up was over, the audience were looking forward to the competitions in the auditorium. Although it was a little bit cool in Shanghai, there was not a single seat available in the auditorium and some spectators were even standing to watch the competition.

Only when you stand on the top of the highest mountain, you can see others are small. Rock climbing has attracted countless fans with its unique sense of conquest when climbing up. Especially the Lead is not only a test of the climber's climbing skills, but also his/her strong will.

At 2:00pm, the men’s and women’s Bouldering semi-finals took place. Bouldering is the most primitive and natural climbing style, in which the competitors are not allowed to use any other tools or equipment except climbing shoes.
