Dmitry Sharafutdinov, a senior lecturer at Ural Federal University’s Institute of Physical Culture, Sport and Youth Policy, recently won the Grand World Cup in bouldering, a type of rock climbing in which the athlete climbs over boulders.

The final stage of the World Cup was held in Munich, where he took fourth place, earning enough points to beat out competitors from Germany, Austria, the U.S., Canada and Japan. He was one of 66 people competing in the event this year, managing to reach all four stages.

Sharafutdinov is the third Russian winner of the Grand World Cup. He ranked third in the world in climbing and bouldering and is a three-time world champion in rock climbing.

The European Championships in bouldering were held Aug. 31 to Sept. 1 in Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
