Paraclimbing Briancon World Cup Highlights, Results

There were multiple medals for France, Great Britain and Italy at the 2018 Paraclimbing Cup debut in Briançon, France.

As day turned to night on Wednesday and the sun set over Parc des Sports, the new climbing venue in Briançon, elite Paraclimbing athletes across 10 categories competed for top podium spots in the 2018 Paraclimbing Cup debut.

Visually impaired athlete Abigail Robinson began the Paraclimbing finals with a quick top of the side wall.

Forearm amputee Matthew Phillips wowed the crowd with a leaping effort to the final hold, missing the top but securing a second victory for Great Britain.

The 2017 season champion Hannah Baldwin made it three wins in a row for Great Britain, finding a top in the RP category (limited range, power or stability).

France and Italy took charge during the subsequent climbing on the overhanging wall. Matteo Stefani caught the crux which bested other finalists, and his Italian teammates Giulio Cevenini and Alessandro Neri also set high points.

Leg amputee Thierry Delarue held on using only his hands multiple times to reach the top panel, and his French teammate Lucie Jarrige closed the round with a crowd-pleasing victory. RP athletes Behnam Khalaji of Iran and Korbinian Franck of Germany also won gold medals.
