Shauna Coxsey, aged 15 has won her category (Female 12-15) in the BMC Leading Ladder Finals. She also displayed exceptional potential - our competition source gives more details:
"The really interesting thing is that at the end of the comp, 15 yr old Shauna Coxsey got on the men's route (ok not under stressful comp conditions) and basically would've beaten all the 19-45 yrs men - how good is that?! She's gonna be a star..."
Congratulations to all the competitors and especially to Shauna.
