European climbing results
By Kenny Stocker | 21, May, 2012
It has been a great weekend of European climbing competition for team GB athletes.
Shauna Coxsey took 2nd place in a nail biting finish to the Innsbruck leg of the bouldering world cup. Going into problem 4 Shauna was in 1st place, narrowly ahead of Austrian climber Anna Stohr on number of attempts. Shauna needed a couple of goes before she could top out the last problem giving Anna an opportunity. Climbing in front of her home crowd Anna didn't make any mistakes, flashing the problem and taking the gold.
This is Shauna's best result on the world cup series, and a successful event as a whole for team GB with Ned Feehally and Stewart Watson both making the mens final.
The European Youth Cup took place in Ratho, and we were pleased to see a strong turn out by both current and ex Nottingham Junior Climbing Team members.
Luke Tilley led the way in his last year in the male juniors category finishing in an excellent 5th place. Other results
Sarah Pashley 19th Female Youth A lead
Flo Tilley 20th Female Youth B lead
Gracie Martin 23rd Female Youth B lead
Tom Bonnert 15th Male juniors lead
Billy Ridal 19th Male Youth B lead
Full results available on the IFSC website.
