Boulder – 2007 Portuguese National Championship

8 11 2007

Here’s some info and photos of last week’s competition in Espinho. A especial thanks is due to Rui Pereira the photographer in service day (you can check other photos from him at his portuguese blog: http://www.quinto-duro.blogspot.com/)

Competition format 

The competition format is already acknowledged to be the best for competitors. We are given a scorecard and have almost 4 hours to do 19 boulders of progressive difficulty each with different scores and within each boulder also 5 different scores (depending on in which attempt you toped them). It looks like a climbers’ meeting (and for many it is 😉 ). After this qualifying round a 4 boulders final with the standard international rules (a onshight first attempt 5m to top or bonus and 5m to rest).

Main results (men and women)

 1º José Abreu (4 tops)                          1ª Isabel Boavida

2º André Neres (2 tops)                        2ª Marisa Correia

3º Ricardo Belchior (1 Top)                   3ª Rute Delgado

Não há dúvida que este homem tem um timing fora de série!
Fiquei muito impressionado com a quantidade de fotos excelentes que tirou! A minha favorita é a segunda (a do José Abreu).
