‘Never thought about stopping’: Shauna Coxsey on climbing while pregnant – video | Sport

Shauna Coxsey has scaled climbing walls and rocks throughout her pregnancy. Videos shared on the Olympian’s Instagram account show her making her way gracefully and powerfully upwards, in control of her body, as she switches holds to accommodate her growing bump. Her decision drew criticism but she was determined to continue as long as her body would allow it. Coxsey started competitively climbing at the age of seven and has made it on to the podium at the World Cup 30 times, including 11 gold medals, and won two world titles in bouldering. Her final competitive climb during the 2020 Olympics saw her placed 10th.
