University of Nottingham Alumni medals at IFSC World Championships for GB Paraclimbing

Description
After the 2020 International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) World Cups were cancelled due to COVID-19, the GB Paraclimbing team headed out to Moscow for the first international competition since the Briançon World Championships in 2019, which included Martha who looked to do better than the bronze she won 2 years ago. Due to new classification rules in preparation for a bid to become a Paralympic discipline, all athletes first had to go through a new classification assessment. After several athletes had to undergo additional climbing observations, and some uncertainty about classifications, Martha was able to compete after a few nerve-wracking days of waiting and was placed in the RP3 sports class.
