Non mollare mai ha un nome: Freya Martin
Vi invitiamo a vedere il video dei campionato inglesi dove la vincitrice Freya Martin si è ritrovata a dover ripetere la RING TRAVERSE per ben sette volte prima di riuscire.
La regola negli OCR internazionali (Europei e Mondiali) è che non ci sono penalità per un ostacolo non superato, semplicemente lo si può tentare un numero infinito di volte ma se non lo si supera correttamente e completamente non si potrà vincere il titolo.
Questa situazione è capitata a Freya Martin ai campionati OCR UK. Ha dovuto provare la Ring Traverse per ben sette volte prima di riuscire. Non ha mollato ed è poi andata a vincere il titolo UK. #nevergiveup
Ecco la descrizione nelle parole di Mudstacle
The moment of the day for me was undoubtedly watching Freya Martin on the Ring Traverse. She was in first place and had a good lead on Dita in second, but after making incredibly rapid progress through the course she came to a surprising halt at the Ring Traverse. I don’t know if it was the wet rings that were causing her hands to slip off or the fact that she had run so hard for the first 14km, but she was really struggling. After the first three or four attempts we could see a panic start to set in her eyes because for her, if she couldn’t get across, it wasn’t just ‘the wristband’ at stake and the pride that goes with it… It was the championship title and cash prize. The whole crowd was behind her, shouting support and the marshalls and OCRA adjudicators there were fantastic, sticking with her the whole way. After the fifth time falling off I heard her say to one of her teammates that she didn’t think she’d get across but she took a couple of minutes out to take a breather, she shook off her arms and refused to give up
When she came back and tried again, with the crowd making a huge noise for her, she made it to the end and her screams of relief and joy as she got to the other end were a wonder to behold and definitely the most emotion I’ve ever seen during an obstacle race. Luckily, Mudstacle TV were there to catch every second so you can see it for yourself below:
