IFSC Boulder World Cup Chongqing: Report

Last weekend saw the third round of the IFSC Boulder World Cup take place in Chongqing, China. In sweltering conditions, Britain's Shauna Coxsey took Gold for the third time in a row this season (fourth if you include her win at the final round of 2015 in Munich).
