Jernej Kruder (SLO) and Miho Nonaka (JPN) were the overall World Cup winners in the 2018 Bouldering World Cup season: Jernej’s Slovenian team-mates Janja Garnbret and Gregor Vezonik won the 7th and last IFSC Boulder World Cup 2018 at the Olympic stadium Munich. There was a fierce duel between the two Japanese women Nonaka and the four-time weltcup winner of the season Akiyo Noguchi in the Women’s World Cup. Noguchi would still need to take the 1st or 2nd place before Nonaka to win the overall World Cup. She did not succeed, but it was enough for a 3rd place. Jakob Schubert became an outstanding third.
