World Cup Only Days Away: Photos and More!

This Saturday and Sunday, the second 2015 World Cup competition will take place in Toronto, Canada.

On May 30 and 31 the world’s best boulderers will meet in Toronto. The problems are harder every year and competition it’s becoming more demanding to make it to the podium.

Twenty-two nationalities will be competing in Toronto. Jan Hojer and Juliane Wurm, both European champions in Innsbruck last week, and Akiyo Noguchi who was last year’s champion in bouldering, will have to push harder to keep that first place.

On the women’s side, Anna Stohr, Fanny Gibert and Shauna Coxsey will be three climbers to watch out for.

In the men’s field, Jakob Schubert and Canadian favourite Sean McColl are two of the top climbers in the world and will be surely pushing themselves this weekend.

For the first time ever, the IFSC World Cup Toronto will take place in a new venue: the Thornhill Arena.

Tune in on Sunday, May 31 and Saturday, May 30.

We will have LIVE-streaming links on the website for everyone to watch the show.
