From the 11. to 21. August 2019 will be looking for the winners in the lead, speed, bouldering and Olympic combined in Hachioji, Japan, as well as the first tickets for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The live streams for the competitions can be found below.

The world championship in Japan will undoubtedly be one of the toughest and most exciting competitions the climbing scene has ever seen. In addition to the four gold medals in lead, speed, bouldering and Olympic combined, the seven best women and men from the combined competition will be on the ticket Olympics solve 2020. There climbing is for the first time Olympic. Especially exciting: All athletes who would like to have a ticket to Tokyo must also compete in the three individual disciplines at this World Cup: These qualify for the combined qualification.

The DAV travels with four men and one lady to Japan, Austria with six-man squad. Switzerland in turn is with Petra Klingler, Sascha Lehmann, Anne-Sophie Koller, Andrea Kümin and Sofya Yokoyama represented at the World Cup.

Ladies: Is Janja Garnbret to defeat?

The women's field is very strong. A hot contender for a title is the reigning world champion in the lead, Jessica mushroom (AUT). In addition belong also Shauna Coxsey (GBR) and the Japanese Akiyo Noguchi and Miho Nonaka to the favorite circle. The absolute favorite status of the currently outstanding Slovene Janja Garnbret (SLO): She already won gold in the Olympic Combined and in Bouldering at the 2018 World Championships in Innsbruck. This year, she was crowned the World Cup Overall Winner in Bouldering with a perfect series. Therefore, the question arises: Who can beat Janja Garnbret, or is that even possible?

Gentlemen: Adam Ondra is coming

The four men also have strong competitors against them. There is for example double world champion Jakob Schubert (AUT): He won 2018 at the home world championships in Innsbruck Gold in Lead and Olympic Combined. Also probably the best climber in the world, Adam Ondra (CZE), has big Olympic ambitions. He sets the bar extremely high in lead and bouldering. And of course, no list of the strongest climbers in the world would be complete without the teams from Japan and Slovenia: The Slovenians include Anze Peharc, Jernej Kruder and Gregor Vezonik to the favorite circle in bouldering, Domen Skofic is a lead professional. And the home team? It comes up with the nation's biggest names: Tomoa Narasaki, Kai Harada, Yoshiyuki Ogata and Kokoro Fujii, Harada won 2018 the Boulder World Championship, Narasaki this year's Boulder World Cup series, Fujii participated in the Combined Final of the 2018 World Championship (as did Narasaki) and Ogata took bronze in this year's Boulder Overall World Cup.

But they have nothing to do with the outcome of the Speed ​​World Championship - as with the ladies. In no other discipline are the individual stars as separate as between speed and lead / bouldering. In speed discipline belongs the Iranian Reza Alipourshenazandifar to the absolute top: He is defending champion and world record holder. But also Bassa Mawem (WOMAN), Vladislav Deulin (RUS), Dmitrii Timofeev (RUS) and Alfian Muhammad (INA) are among the front runners.
