SCARPA athletes Jernej Kruder and Alex Puccio conquer a great silver medal at Boulder World Championship in Munich (Germany) in front of 6000 spectators.
Jernej proved his regularity in a challenge that in the beginning seemed to be a closed game between Ondra and Hojer. He was third until the last block, then he immediately completed the fourth block, beating the German Hojer and achieving the best performance of his career.

In the women category everything was uncertain until the last block. The winner at the end was Wurm that engaged an exciting battle with Puccio. Now Alex surely can’t wait to prove to be the best!
Excellent performance of Michaela Tracy too, the great revelation of the day that close 6th. The English National Boulder’s Champion also won the Deep Water Solo in Exter (UK).
