Shauna Coxsey MBE is the current IFSC World Cup bouldering champion.
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 widely recognised as a key spokesperson for the sport and has extensive experience of working with the media and in other public speaking environments to provide insight, explanation and commentary on climbing, women in sport and access to sport.
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.
