Romain Desgranges wins Lead World Cup in Briançon

Frenchman Romain Desgranges wins the third World Cup victory in front of home crowd. For the women, Janja Garnbret again climbed to the top step of the podium. The 25-jähgie Frenchwoman Katherine Choong made it to the 10. Space.

Thousands of spectators gathered at the third lead competition of the IFSC World Cup season in Briançon, France. The Frenchman Romain Desgranges has won well deserved. He and the Canadian Sean McColl made it as the only finalists in the upper wall part. But in the end, the French get two more moves. For Switzerland, Anne-Sophie Koller, Alina Ring and Katherine Choong were at the start. They took the places 22, 25 and 10.

Again wins Janja Garnbret

For women, the field was dominated by the usual suspects. The Korean Jain Kim, the Belgian Anak Verhoeven and the Slovenian Janja Garnbret. Janja Garnbret won by one move, followed by Anak Verhoeven and Jain Kim. Janja won the lead competition for the third time in a row.
