  • As bouldering competition footage is so rare these days, it would be great if you could provide one recording per boulder, so we can watch each boulder separately. Watching this stream feels like missing out on nearly everything.

This isn’t cute, just unprofessional. “All Japanese climbers are machines” or “the Russian woman”. Also not all Russian women are called Katya. Please stop this racist commentary. Learn their names.

  • People are complaining about camerawork, but I don't think it's their fault. It's the terrible organization of the event. Having 3 people climb at the same time? How is the cameraman, or the guy in the studio switching between the cameras, supposed to know when to watch which climber? And if both of the climbers are getting to the top at the same time, which one should get priority for the screen time? I get that they do this, to get multiple birds with 1 stone, but it's still a shit idea.

    DalladrionDalladrionPred 17 dnevi
  • I agree with everyone who said the camera with us aggravating. I am here to watch people climb, not stand still and chalk their hands. There are obviously enough cameras, why not just film the climbers climbing?

  • I don't know who is responsible for IT and social media at the IFSC but they suck at their job. There is bearly any information in the description of the videos here (there aren't even links to the IFSC homepage), the homepage is a mess, the app of the IFSC they talk is almost impossible to find and the directing in the videos is usually awful. When they want to be considered as being professionals they should start to behave that way.

  • Most of the 20 men getting nowhere on M4 and we don't even get to see how Adam does the crack problem? Come onnn just put a split screen when there are only two climbers left on the mat. Also I would tend to agree with Jacob Schubert, crack problems are kinda overrated in boulder comps, only Adam and the Wide Boyz can do it the intended way !

  • I watched the entire semi-final presentation right up until the last second to make sure I didn't miss anything. I have a few points: 1) I really appreciate the IFSC putting on and showing these events for everyone to see. The production value of the problems, live-stream, commentary, etc., gets better and better every year. I can understand why it would be frustrating for someone to miss seeing his/her favourite climber top a semi-finals boulder because of a camera angle change. I used to find it disappointing when only one move of Sean McColl's entire semi-final run was shown. However, I was still incredibly grateful that an organization spent tens of thousands of dollars (or more) purchasing equipment, setting up the equipment, hiring editors/AV tech crew, working out livestreaming rights in foreign countries, etc., yet at the same time not charging me anything for the privilege of watching my favourite climbers in real time on the other side of the world. I still am grateful. I also am a true fan of sports in general, this sport and all IFSC events. I have watched all of the IFSC livestreams (replays). I understand that when a local TV company is filming the event in HD, it is not the IFSC that directly controls the camera angles or who is shown on the screen. It's also not necessarily the "camera work" that you are upset with, since there are multiple camera angles from which to choose, and at least some of those are providing the angle you want. More than likely, it's actually the TV company's director deciding when to switch angles and to which camera that's making you upset. Complaining in the comments here will not change anything. You need to talk to the TV company responsible for the production or else you might look like a bit of a fool complaining about the wrong thing in the wrong forum. 2) I agree with the comments about Janja being incredible. I always knew she was great, and have been a long time fan since her first ever Open IFSC competition. Without some of the other top female competitors (resting/peaking for the Olympics, presumably), the gap in skill/power between Janja and almost everyone else in the division is really shocking. At least Akiyo (who blows me away with her longevity) has the decency to use all of her limbs to climb the hard problems... Janja just campuses up volumes and stops dead on paddle dynos. It's pretty disrespectful of the the route setters :P Ha! 3) While I am amazed at how easily Adam Ondra makes the Meiringen crack look every year. It's not fair to say it's easy (I think I heard/read someone refer to the 2019 crack as a "5.10 crack"). After the 2019 debacle, the entire Japanese team practiced crack climbing a lot. Also, it's not like these climbers only climb in the gym. Most of them climb well in to 5.14 grade (or 8c+ at least). You would think that they could at least make some progress if it were that actually easy. My real point is that I'm surprised that more people don't complain about this. I personally enjoy seeing it (the Meiringen crack) and think it's pretty creative, although I wouldn't want to have to climb it in competition. I also really enjoy seeing a flying triple-paddle coordination dyno. I really like seeing Adam Ondra struggle to have to learn how to speed climb, or watching Tomoa Narasaki invent new beta that has been adopted by the other pure speed climbers. That said, literally hundreds of negative comments were made about the dynos when they started showing up more and more, and about the speed climbing being included in the Olympics when it was first announced. However, only a few questions here and there about the "fairness" of the crack ever pop up on this channel. Seems odd...

  • whoever is responsible for the direction/camera selection, terrible job. watching a climber chalk up for half a minute, and the moment she is about to touch the wall, you switch to another climber chalking up. even a random selection would have been better

    Chris ValeChris ValePred 18 dnevi
  • I'll have to chime in on the poor directing of the live stream. Whoever is in charge of this should have a much better feel for what the audience wants to see. Typical examples are first completions of previously undone problems, key moves, different methods for important passages and so on. Perhaps the worst violation of these guidelines was with Adam Ondra on M4. I'd assume most viewers, upon first seeing the crack, thought: "I can't wait to see Ondra on this one". Besides opting to show an inconsequential attempt on W4 live instead of Ondra, we never got to see him climb the crack properly despite two (!) replays. Unforgivable in my opinion.

  • I hate these parallel competitions, why can't you record it seperately and post individual videos? This cutting between one climber and another means missing all the action.

    mumia76mumia76Pred 19 dnevi
    • @mumia76 I completely understand where you're coming from and can relate but unfortunately passion doesn't generate revenue. The federation needs to budget for a lot i.e. Boulder holds, setters, mats, cameras, staff, metals, commentary, etc. It's a lot of account for and if they were to invest more on recording individual cuts in the semis, then we would be losing out else where whether it be in finals or even on the Boulder routes. You can see that the federation is passionate about the sport based on the setting, Boulder holds and even just the fact that this event was able to be held amidst covid.

      Vivian NguyenVivian NguyenPred 16 dnevi
    • @Vivian Nguyen Why? Because you are passionate about the sport. If the federation itself isn't passionate then what can we expect? But I shouldn't be too hard on them as most other sport federations refuse to show even this much. Or anything at all. It pisses me off to no end. And when I want to videograph the event myself they tell me its not allowed. FFS.

      mumia76mumia76Pred 16 dnevi
    • I hate parallel views too but it makes the most sense. This is the live stream so to record separate videos in addition to the live stream recording means more staff, more cameras, more time, and more money. And why would you spend all of these resources on just semis

  • Everyone complaining about the stream clearly hasn’t been watching World Cups for very long. Go back and watch some of the replays from the mid-teens and then talk to me about camera work 😉. It’s semis w/ 8 people on the wall - it’s not going to perfect. I’m grateful that it’s live, free, and high quality. I’d rather watch it here like this than on TV w/ ads every 5m.

    • Great comment. I couldn't agree more. When I was starting out climbing I had to wait an hour or more for my 56k modem to download 40 seconds of some colourful square pixels moving around all herky jerky. If I was lucky I had some music in the background. Search videos from early 2000s climbing competitions. These grainy 4:3 ratio films were unbelievable to me at the time, considering what I used to have. Here I am now watching a live video from the other side of the world with an Olympian giving me helpful commentary. Other times I'm able to see live video from inside China. Amazing! No matter how clear the video, or how good the intros or commentary are though, spoiled children these days will still complain about the commentary every year. It's baffling to me.

  • well done Matt in the hot seat! this was a great first go and you did a lovely job playing off of your guest commentators. the camera work unfortunately took quite a bit away from these comps - I honestly feel as though I know more about chalking preferences than I do about some climbers' styles. thankfully this is something that can be fixed with better angles, more conscientious focus choices, etc! using a split screen when there are so many climbers on the wall would be helpful, and rethinking some of the visual overlay (a transparent score sidebar rather than a solid one) could help focus the performance on the climbers themselves. at the very least, when key sections of major problems are solved, it would be nice to see consistent/complete replays rather than just trailing shots at the tail end of things! sad to miss out on what sounded like some really good action in this comp - and looking forward to the ways it can improve!

  • 1. Poor camerawork. Missed plenty of tops while showing idle scenes. Even the replays mostly showed only the very last few seconds of the topped route. 2. Matt sounds to be a nice chap, but completely lack of professionalism. Hardly provided any insight nor background information on the climbers. His continuous excitement and tone felt unnatural. I wish him the best though, commentating such an event for the first time may not be easy.

In this case to be more specific, I was truly missing any explanation on the missing participants such as Shauna Coxsey, Tomoa Narasaki, Sean McColl, Jongwon Chon, etc. It is like commentating a Juventus - Barcelona soccer match, where Ronaldo and Messi are not present and not even mentioning them at all. Also it was frustrating to see that seemingly he had no idea about Shouta Amagasa and other new faces, even though many of them had remarkable achievements during the past year. Even for well known stars such as Adam Ondra he did not provide any information on their recent training routines, injuries, interesting stories, etc. I believe if he does his homework he can improve a lot as a commentator.

    • I think everyone will agree with you in regards to the camera work. Your comment about Matt however is a bit harsh. Matt is arguably the second best Ifsc commentator we've had, after Charlie Boscoe obviously. Hard shoes to fill but Matt is doing a much better than many of the previous commentators.
