The Alternative Sport Show: Shauna Coxsey / Redbull

In this episode of ‘The Alternative Sport ShowMatthew Connell and Andre Dixon speak with professional rock climber Shuana Coxsey.

Shauna Coxsey is already Britain’s most successful ever competitive climber and the UK’s first ever Bouldering World Champion

Coxsey is one of only four women ever to have climbed a boulder route graded 8B+, the third-most difficult rating of all. She has also won every British Bouldering Championship she’s ever entered. In 2016, she won the Women’s Bouldering title at the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) World Cup – and went onto do the same in 2017.

In 2016, she was also named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list as a recipient of an MBE – the very same weekend she won the IFSC Boulder World Cup title.

The following year Coxsey continued her dazzling form by winning four stages in Meiringen, Kazo, Mumbai and Vail to give her a successive Boulder World Cup title, as well as a bronze medal in the Combined category.

In August 2019, the chalk bag-totting superstar won two bronze medals at the 2019 IFSC Climbing World Championships in Hachioji, Japan, in Bouldering and the Combined event.

Now, after successfully qualifying, Shauna has her sights on the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, where climbing will make its debut.
