She commented on her blog:
"This competition was the hardest, most exciting and intense competition I have ever entered. It required so much from me and I have never ached this much or had so many grazes! The field of women was so impressively strong. It is amazing to be around so many women who love the sport and who are psyched for competitions.
I left the American National Bouldering Championships truly inspired by both the men and the women competitors and the loud, enthusiastic crowd that kept us going though finals. I hope we put on a good show! I have made so many new friends and I hope to return to America to explore the endless rock it has to offer and maybe (if my body can handle it) attempt some more of their truly unique competitions."
24 March, Shauna, Alex and Shauna will meet again as they are all among the competitors in the Tierra Boulder Battle invitational competition in Stockholm. Maybe this time Shauna can end up on the top of the podium.
