Tokyo | 6 August – Olympic Sport Climbing came to a close tonight with medals awarded in the Women’s Final. Out of a final field of eight, Brooke Raboutou (Boulder, CO) finished in 5th. The medals went to Janja Garnbret (Slovenia) gold, Miho Nonaka (Japan) silver and Akiyo Noguchi (Japan) bronze.


Raboutou fell against Nonaka, lost to Garnbret with a 8.77, and beat Seo (Republic of Korea) with a 9.06. After three speed runs she was positioned in 7th heading into bouldering.


The women each faced three problems. Raboutou fought hard and was very close on several problems climbing to three zones and finishing 2nd. After speed and bouldering, she headed into lead in 5th place.


Raboutou was the third climber to attempt the wall and climbed to 20+. She finished 6th in lead.
