Commentary was good, and it can be even better if you look at the language you're using - all the men you're talking about how much they would like to win, and the women it's how happy they are to be there and how smiley/calm/focused they appear. The women also want to win, and I would think the men are also happy to be there!

Great to see Eliska win. It’s interesting however that a maybe a reasonably basic positioning error likely made the difference for Natalia being second. Maybe she underestimated how bad that last crimp was or was just really pumped and thus just “going for it”. However just looking at it you can see how much more easy Eliska made the move by shifting across so her centre of gravity is under the crimp and holding herself in position with left foot against the volume. In contrast Natalia is much further to the right and would have had to swap feet to move across.

Also I think Eliska managed a very effective knee bar test on the route that could have given her just that edge!

Martin C
Martin C Pred 7 dnevi
@mrmoorash I agree Stefano is deserving of a podium as a top 5 lead climber in the world. Being #15 shouldn't get podiums. Seems like you're new to IFSC cups, you're in for a treat when the big dogs come back.
mrmoorash
mrmoorash Pred 7 dnevi
@Martin C on my opinion, Sean, Dmitriy and others who appeared to be on the podium are at least on the top 10-15 competition climbers list, which including missing athletes as well. Alberto is a rising star, Sean significantly improved as a lead climber since 2019 and he could easily compete with all other missing top athletes. Needless to say Stephano one of the best climbers in the world, and Sean with others proved their high level competing against Stephano, which could be sort of a benchmark. So no, not a word that you said is legit or makes any sense, in my opinion.
Martin C
Martin C Pred 7 dnevi
​@mrmoorash Most notably, Sean Bailey and everyone who podium'd at Chamonix or Braincon. Don't get me wrong, these climbers could still make finals under normal circumstances, but this is not the quality of climbing we saw in 2019.

Climbing is, at its heart, play. Some forms of training do not feel like training. How people used to train in the 70s and 80s, just bouldering. That’s enough to get into decent shape. Of course they have to train systematically these days too. But when they actually climb, it’s fun.

There was no way Bailey could’ve won, the two moves above where he fell at are max span. I don’t even think he can do those moves. Bad route setting.
Samantha S
Samantha S Pred 12 dnevi
Sean was probably at more of a disadvantage with his height for that move, however, I still believe that it was possible for him. His right hand popped off while he was reaching which caused him to fall. I think that if he was less pumped and if his right hand stayed on, he could've definitely made the move work.
Zachary Laschober
Zachary Laschober Pred 13 dnevi
@Alex Church Sean has almost always been the shortest male competitor and knows he has to be dynamic, yet because he pinches the volume and scummed his right foot for most of the move he greatly slowed his movement and restricted his range. Despite this, he was still able to post with fingertips. Not in the least impossible. Harder? Probably, but doubt Sean would use that as an excuse.
Alex Church

on Stefano's instagram you will see him practice moves exactly like that slip where he is gripping his hangbox only with his elbows and forearms (using shoulders and pecs muscles). So that's amazing ha ha it paid off. Also I believe there is footage of him slipping and saving himself on either La Dura Dura or Bibliographie. Stefano is 100% a climbing legend and one of the greatest current climbers!

​@Blar Froer After who? Ondra and Megos? Both Ghisolfi and Schubert have done 9b+ outdoors, and Schubert is the much more accomplished comp climber between the two. Honestly Schubert is disgustingly good in comps and might be the best most consistent lead comp climber of all 4.

@KTape Yeah I've watched them all and all I'm reading are just excuses from you. Easy route setting. Dynamic moves. Come on dude that move was not difficult at all and I'm sure Laura would agree it's all on her for not hitting it. Are you actually saying "if she didn't fall she would have won". Do you realize how ridiculous that sounds?? And let's not pretend Laura isn't decent at bouldering coming in top 10 at Innsbruck. Regardless, I'm not saying Natalia or Brooke are better than any of them but I think you're confused by the definition of "on another level". Maybe English isn't your first language but when you consistently podium with the same people and sometimes beat them at the highest level of competition then yes you are on their level.
KTape
KTape Pred 12 dnevi
@Joe B Yes I have watched them, have you? Also I don’t think you quite understand the setting purposes in each round. Finals routes are easier than semifinals (apart from the major mishap in Chamonix and here in Briançon to some extent where the semis were too easy) because the finals are meant to be a show where there’s a top to entertain the crowd. Semifinals are intentionally set in a higher difficulty to provide accurate separation based on ability. It doesn’t matter that Natalia climbed a finals route a minute faster, lead is about endurance/technical skill not how fast a climber can speedrun an easy to top route. Go watch the Innsbruck and Villars semifinals to see just how much better Janja and Laura are compared to Natalia and Brooke. I wouldn’t say Brooke “handily” beat Laura in Innsbruck either, Laura fell quite early on a trippy dynamic move that knocked out both her and Lucka, as the two of them are lead specialists and don’t work on dynamic moves as the boulderers would. If not for that fall or the weirdly bouldery/dynamic setting of that final, I highly doubt Laura would’ve lost to Brooke. Her endurance and static strength are undoubtedly better than Brooke’s. Also, as I mentioned before, both Ai Mori and Chaehyun Seo did not compete this season. Ai has incredible endurance, and Chaehyun has consistently beaten Janja, even claiming the overall lead title in 2019. Unless one of those 4 makes a mistake or the setters create a route full of dynos like the Innsbruck final, the American climbers likely won’t be on the podium. I’m not saying that they aren’t on good form at the moment, but you’re really not accounting for the fact that so many strong athletes have not been competing for the entirety of this season, due to covid travel restrictions and/or Olympic preparations.
Joe B
Joe B Pred 12 dnevi
@KTape Did you watch the recent comps? Natalia has been right behind Laura and Janja in basically each lead finals. She actually did the final problem in Villars a minute faster than even Janja but missed the last hold. And Brooke has handily beaten Laura once already this season…
KTape
KTape Pred 12 dnevi
@Blar Froer I agree that the US athletes have become stronger, but you have to recognize that so many major players have not been competing/competing inconsistently throughout this season. I don’t think we’re going to be seeing any US women in lead podiums once Chaehyun Seo and Ai Mori are back competing alongside Janja and Laura. Those 4 are just on another level with their lead climbing.

Why was Lucka Rakovec's score 26 instead of 27+? She should have been in the tie at 27+ and moved ahead of Ashima on countback, if I'm not mistaken, but her final score was lower and she finished in 6th place instead
Wind River
Wind River Pred 14 dnevi
The 27th hold was the undercling on the the left side of the volume that you can see Ashima using at 1:32:09. Lucka never used that hold, instead going directly for the next one. She was given a + though, so her final score was 26+
KTape
KTape Pred 14 dnevi
Major props to the routesetters for this excellent final, both the women’s and men’s routes presented the challenge they’re supposed to with a good balance of powerful yet technical climbing. An amazing podium battle and well-deserved golds on both sides as well. Stefano with that crazy compression save on the volume and still powering through to a new high point. And Eliska of course, what a smooth climb through the bottom section and giving it everything she had on the crimps. I’m sure she’ll remember this victory for a long time to come. As much as I miss the Olympians and can’t wait to see them back, it was nice to see the talent of the other climbers shine through today.

German TV nominates a "goal of the month" in football, we should have a "climbing move of the month". And for July, it's Stefano's save. Just, how? Big congrats to Eliska, you earned it. And Matt, please put a little effort into the athletes' names. Her name is Ryu Nakagawa, not Rye-yoo Naguagua. That's honestly disrespectful.

SleepTightShipOfDrea Pred 12 dnevi
@Ian Rasmussen Oh please, no need to make it sound like rocket science... Japanese in particular is super easy to speak. Just say "you" with an r before and bam - Ryu, pronounced correctly, with an accent. Adding whole syllables and diphtongs is not "accent", it's part dyslexia and part ignorance. I appreciate that dyslexia is hard to beat, plus Anglosaxons are agressively monolingual... But it should simply be a given that names are pronounced correctly in an international comp series. Matt's doing a great job otherwise, just this point is super annoying.
Ian Rasmussen
Ian Rasmussen Pred 12 dnevi
I don't understand the anger over someone having difficultly pronouncing words in a language that uses completely different syllables from the one that they speak (it's actually crazy how different syllables and sounds between some languages are from a linguistics perspective). Strange to me that people get so offended at different pronunciations. That's what accents are, they're a normal part of growing up speaking a language, and it influences how you say words. There's nothing disrespectful about giving it your best shot but not being able to do it 100%.

@Matt Groom Hey Matt, you are legendary in names butchering:), but you got Eliška Adamovská pretty good and I noticed that you got much better. Commentary in my opinion is as good as Charlie Boscoes and guests are always great. Great input from booth Sebastian and Molly. Thanks man, you are doing a great job!
ToBeardOrNotToBeard
ToBeardOrNotToBeard Pred 13 dnevi
@Matt Groom Some advice from a guy who commentated on diverse events with plenty of different names before: When you write down phonetics, be sure that the phonetics are actual phonetics (or at least phonetics that you can understand). Even if you invent your own code for it, just have something that is consistent and isn't just English letters slapped together haphazardly. You want to do your best to make sure that when you read your phonetics, the sound that comes out of your mouth is the same. Sure you might make mistakes here and there, but it's actually better to make the same mistakes over and over again than it is to pronounce the name differently each time (you run the risk of confusing viewers who might think you're talking about multiple people when you're actually only talking about one person). Additionally, a consistent phonetic system is a lot easier to correct! You can compare the original with your phonetic version and make adjustments where necessary because you have a consistent system. Also take note of the actual number of syllables (pronouncing with the wrong number of syllables is one of the easiest ways to make a name sound absolutely butchered). Unfortunately you will need to practice pronouncing syllable structures that don't exist in English (e.g. "Ryu" or "Lju" in Ljubljana). As frustrating and awful as it might feel, re-listening to your own recordings with a critical ear is a useful (albeit cringey) exercise. Lastly, it might be worth it to rank pronunciations with difficulty. When I was doing this, I would put 3 stars next to names that were especially difficult, 2 and 1 stars next to medium and easier names respectively. Then at a glance on the name sheet, I could quickly identify the names that I need to practice on, and the names that I need to be careful to pronounce correctly. I think your commentary by-and-large is extraordinarily fluent. You never get in the way of the action, and you always have something intelligent and useful to say that helps push the broadcast forward. You establish fantastic rapport with your co-commentators, even though they are shuffling every single time, which is difficult to do! I would say that the only thing holding you back from taking your commentary to the next level is the occasional slip-up with names, and that is a workable issue that you can improve. Keep up the great work mate!
