|Four American women out of a field of 69 qualified for the 20-person semifinals of the Arco, Italy, World Championship bouldering event on July 17. One of them made the finals field of six, as Sasha DiGiulian, 18, ended up on the podium in second place.|
Alex Johnson finished in 7th, Angela Payne took 17th place, and Francesca Metcalf rounded out the crew in 19th. Metcalf, also one of the youngest members of the US team at age 18, made a statement by finishing her round in the qualifers---which split the large fields into two groups and sets of problems---tied for first. Because the field competed in two groups, everyone in qualifiers tied with someone else.
In the finals, won by Anna Stohr, DiGiulian flashed the first two problems. She almost topped out the third but found the fourth problem difficult. She says in her blog, "This last boulder was quite scary and I was especially concerned about injury." DiGiulian is registered for the lead event as well and the qualifiers start on Wednesday, July 20. The lead event, along with all other IFSC Arco World Championship events, will be streamed live at ifsc.tv.
