New heights:
Climbing's dramatic ascent

Shauna Coxsey MBE, is Britain’s most successful competitive climber, having won the Bouldering World Cup in 2016 and 2017. Stripped down to its essentials, bouldering is rock climbing with no ropes and no harnesses – just your climbing shoes and your skill… Now, with climbing about to debut at the Tokyo games, Shauna is reaching for gold.

 

A lack of sleep can be okay for a very short period of time, but when I’m training a full ten hours is necessary and when I’m on the road, eight hours is my absolute minimum.
