Alex Johnson has become the second woman (as far as I know), after Lisa Rands, to repeat Bishop's own über classic The Mandala.

The problem has a long story of beta changes and broken holds but at the moment the grade seems to have settled at Font 8A+ for the standing start and Font 8B/+ for the sit down.

Bishop is bound to be heating up quite significantly very soon, as a bunch of strong Euros, headed by Kilian Fischhuber, Anna Stöhr, Nalle Hukkataival and Guillaume Glairon Mondet, will be arriving shortly.
