Today we've got a full break down on last weekend's Boulder World Cup in Grindelwald, Switzerland. This was the third stop on the World Cup tour after events in China and Azerbaijan and even at this early stage of the season it seems that there are clear favourites in both the mens and womens events.
For the men, German powerhouse Jan Hojer has streaked into the overall lead having won in both China and Switzerland and come second in Azerbaijan.
Meanwhile in the women's event the big news was that for the first time, a British woman won a World Cup event. Somewhat unsurprisingly after her consistently high performances so far this season, it was Shauna Coxsey who claimed the win and with it took the lead in the overall standings.
The next event takes place in Innsbruck, Austria and we will be reporting from the event and talking to all the key climbers so stay tuned for plenty more World Cup action.
