Shauna commented on competing at Innsbruck and how it felt to win her 2nd Gold Medal:

“The crowd in Innsbruck is immense, the wall is amazing and the setting is always really fun. The atmosphere really is incomparable to any of the other events. Standing on top of the podium was indescribable; I still can’t believe that I won! Again! I’m pretty overwhelmed.”
