HOHHOT BRACED FOR ICE CLIMBING DEBUT

Hohhot, located in the Inner Mongolia region of China, will host the third UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup event of the 2018 season from 2-4 February.

Following a highly successful event in Beijing last year, China continues to become an important presence on the World Tour stage. A new ice climbing structure has been built in Hohhot promising exciting routes in lead and a challenging speed wall. And athletes will need to stay warm between rounds of competition – temperatures are expected to drop well in excess of -10°C.

Over 80 international athletes are expected to participate in Hohhot including the presence of 14 Chinese athletes. Livestreaming will be available from semi-finals and finals of competition on the UIAA Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels  as well as on the Olympic Channel and on livestreaming media partner EXTREME. Furthermore, state broadcaster CCTV will provide live coverage in China.

As the halfway juncture of the season, results in Hohhot will help shape the current 2018 UIAA Ice Climbing World Tour leaderboard. Mohammadreza Korouyeh Safdarian of Iran holds the advantage in the men’s lead competition following a historic gold medal last weekend. Russia’s Tomilov brothers – Alexey and Maxim are his closest challengers. Hannarai Song, the leader of the women’s competition, will not feature in Hohhot so compatriot Woonseon Shin and Russia’s Maria Tolokonina and Ekaterina Vlasova will seek to challenge her advantage ahead of round 4 in Cheongsong, South Korea.

Gold medallist last weekend in Rabenstein, Anton Nemov leads the men’s speed competition holding a 40-point lead over Nikolai Kuzovlev. Ekaterina Feoktistova enjoys a 33-point lead over compatrior Nadezda Gallyamova in the women’s event.
