Teenage superstar Janja Garnbret and a pair of speedsters from Russia were among the winners at the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) World Cup leg in Wujiang today.

Garnbret, 18, was the only finalist to make it to the top in the women's lead competition as she continued her superb form on a wall located 300 metres south of the Chinese city's Fenhu Economy and Technology Development Zone.

The World Cup leader was far too strong for the rest of the field as Kim Jain of South Korea had to settle for second best once again.

Julia Chanourdie of France took bronze.

Stefano Ghisolfi of Italy benefited from a rare off day by French World Cup series leader Romain Desgranges to win the corresponding men's event.

He scampered to the top in the final as the rest of the field laboured.

Tomoa Narasaki of Japan ultimately placed second with Kim Hanwoo of South Korea third and Desgranges only fifth.

Russian climbers dominated both speed events.

Iulia Kaplina overcame arch-rival Anouck Jaubert of France to win the women's final.

Kaplina clocked 7.66 seconds to win by 0.07 as another Russian in Elizaveta Ivanova took bronze.

Qualification leader Aries Susanti Rahayu finished a creditable fourth after false starting in her final race.

Aleksandr Shikov won a thrilling men's final by 0.01 after ousting Indonesian rival Aspar Jaelolo. 

Another Indonesian in Sabria Sabri took bronze.
