Last weekend saw the final round of the IFSC Bouldering World Cup taking place in Munich, Germany on the 30th – 31st July, and was again attended by a strong field from the British Bouldering Team.

Excellent performances in the men's event saw Stew Watson and Ned Feehally both making the semi finals and finishing a very credible 9th and 16th place overall. In the women's event qualifying for the semifinals was a closely fought contest with Mina Leslie-Wujastyk coming closest to qualification in 27th place.

In the finals it was left to the ever dominant Czech strong man Adam Ondra and Akiyo Noguchi of Japan to win on the day seeing both competitors grabbing the overall titles of this year's IFSC World Cup champions.

Other excellent performances from members of the British Bouldering Team include:

Dave Barrans - 29th

Diane Merrick - 31st

Adam Jeewooth - 35th

Katy Piddock - 35th

Gill Peet - 37th

Jon Partridge - 61st

This ends a great year for the British Bouldering Team with the final rankings for the 2010 World Cup season seeing Stewart Watson finishing 6th place overall and Dave Barrans 17th, along with a list of excellent team results throughout the season. Full results for the final Munich competition and the overall world rankings can be viewed at the IFSC website.

Next up, stay tuned as 10 competitors from the British Bouldering Team will be attending the European Championships in Imst , Austria later on the 14-18 Sep.
