Shauna Coxsey MBE is a double IFSC Bouldering World Cup champion, the first British female to climb the grades of V12, V13 and V14 and is currently training to qualify for selection to Team GB to participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Climbing since the age of four, Shauna has cemented a global reputation as one of the world's best competition climbers; with a notable track record in outdoor bouldering also.
A passionate proponent of widening participation in sport, when she was 18 years old, Shauna established the Women's Climbing Symposium. Now an annual event which was last year attended by over 400 women, the WCS aims to connect, develop and inspire women to climb, whatever their level.
Shauna is also a trustee of Climbers Against Cancer, a charity to unite the climbing community in supporting Cancer Research which was set up by the late John Ellison.
