Sports Bulletin Report

Prague (Czech Republic):-The French teenager girl Oriane Bertone won the first-ever gold medal in the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) World Cup Series 2023 that concluded here on Sunday.

France’s 18-year-old climber Oriane Bertone, seeded sixth at the end of the semi-final round, upset the entire field of competitors and took the first World Cup gold medal of her career. On her way to the top of the podium, Bertone flashed two out four boulders, also topping W1 at the second try, and concluding with three tops and four zones.

Gold medalist Oriane Bertone said:

“I knew that if didn’t try boulder number 4 at my best, my coach would have killed me. I knew I had to take the zone to win, and when I did, I saw my coaches go crazy, but I wanted my competition to be complete, so I had to stay concentrated. It was amazing, one of the best feelings I ever had. I love Flavy, she’s my friend and my teammate, and I’m so happy to be on the podium with her”.

French national coach, Nico Jaunel said:

“It’s been a great event, and a great season. We have a young team and we work very hard to make these results possible. Today, with Janja Garnbret coming back, it was not easy, so we are very happy to have two athletes on the podium, very happy for them. It’s good to see that our hard work is paying off.”

The IFSC World Cup Prague 2023 kicked off a three-week long series of events that will continue in Brixen, Italy, from June 9 to 11, and Innsbruck, Austria, from 14 to 18 June.
