The men’s final bouldering round at the World Championships only saw two tops. And those tops were by one athlete, Tomoa Narasaki.

While there was still lots of sports action and almost-sends, at the end of the day, no one else came close to the Japanese rock star. Not even Adam Ondra, who, to everyone’s surprise, didn’t send a single zone.

As it often goes when comp problems are hard, the results at this event were very close. Jakob Schubert (AUT), Yannick Flohé (GER) and Kokoru Fujii (JPN) all finished with three zones, separated by attempts (10, 13, 18, respectively). And Keita Dohi (JPN) climbed two zones.
