About 20,000 people watched live on as Austrians Anna Stöhr and Kilian Fischhuber stood atop the podium for the second time in a rowthis year.Problems for men and women had a wide range of styles, from balancey moves to sideways dynos to even double hand jams. Stöhr was the only woman to top all four finals problems, easily securing first place. Fischhuber narrowly beat Sean McColl, who finished second; both men finished four problems, but Fischhuber had fewer attempts. Jan Hojer had an impressive showing, flashing the first three men's finals problems, but his no-send on number 4 put him in third.
