Now Maja is a girl I dont really know so well. I first met her at a ninja competition at Farm Ninja Challenge. We just called her “the Swedish girl”. She was too good…. In the beginning of the competition we didn’t follow her so close, we just noticed that she was really good - and a fast monkey! Of course she managed to easy get from stage 1 till stage 2, and of course also to stage3. But know there was a a lot of grips and more technical challenges, which all the girls struggled a bit with. So that actually made it a little bit more exciting…but still she beat us - not so easy - but still! Her team is Team Kroppslabbet, so that of course explains it, but still it is an achievement to be a good monkey. And also to combine it with running, gives her that extra respect. As I said, this years 15 km course in age groups at OCRWC was brutal, but this girl not only finished with her bracelet - she finished nr 23 in PRO! Well done Maja, and I hope to get to know you better at the next Ninja competition ;)
