SINA GOETZ AND NIKOLAI PRIMEROV TAKE THE PLAUDITS IN DOMZALE

Swiss athlete Sina Goetz and Russia’s Nikolai Primerov claimed gold medals during the second UIAA Ice Climbing European Cup event of the 2018-2019 season.

Already venue for a European Cup in 2017, Domžale again proved an excellent host of the event through the outstanding organisation of the Alpine Association of Slovenia and its local branch.

Goetz claimed a second straight gold medal in the women’s competition following success in Bern last week. Compatriot Vivien Labarile took silver and France’s Marion Thomas bronze.

Primerov, third last week, took gold ahead of Lukas Goetz, Sina’s brother, and Alexander Werren, also of Switzerland.

31 competitors hailed from 11 countries (Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Poland, Slovakia, Serbia, Switzerland, Sweden and host country Slovenia).

The four-leg European Tour heads to Žilina, Slovakia this weekend.
