Sunday, 13 June

Shauna Coxsey, who has stood on 30 World Cup podiums and won eleven gold medals, has announced on Insta that the Olympics in Tokyo will be her last competition.

The only other World Cup she has done after that was the first in Salt Lake City where she was #36 out of 49 competitors, which was her worst result ever by far. In between 2011 and 2019, her worst result during 59 Bouldering WC's and Championships was being #10. (c) Eddie Fowke
