As the leaves change colour and the season winds down, the race for the overall Lead title heated up!

In the women’s final, there was a move where all the finalists fell, all but two: Anak Verhoeven (BEL), who made it one move further, and Jain Kim (KOR), who fell 6 moves higher than the rest of the field and took gold. With this amazing performance, Jain Kim is now 2nd in the overall ranking behind Mina Markovic (SLO), and in front of Jessica Pilz (AUT), who took bronze in Wujiang.

In the men’s field, Adam Ondra (CZE) made it back from a somewhat lackluster 2015 season to win his first World Cup of the year in Wujiang. The Czech prodigy dominated the final with a very efficient climbing style that gave him the gold. Puurs winner Domen Skofic (SLO) was in great form this weekend, and he took silver in Wujiang after a tough fight in the final. Sean McColl (CAN) completes the podium. Gautier Supper (FRA) still leads the Lead overall ranking, but Adam Ondra is only ten points behind. It will all come down to the last IFSC World Cup of the season to pick up a Lead World Cup Champion 2015!
