»It is inconceivable what I have achieved this season,« said Janja Garnbret.

She became the World Champion also in lead climbing.

Mia Krampl was also successful, finishing second.

Two days earlier, Janja Garnbret had already been cheered by fans for the gold medal in bouldering.

In this discipline, she is the first athlete in the world to defend the title of world champions for the second time.
