PhD. student Annika Thomsen won 2 goldmedals in OCR

OCR- Obstacle Course Racing. A sport where a competitor, traveling on foot, must overcome different challenges, such as climbing a wall, jumping, arm swing with moving rings, carrying heavy weight etc.

PhD. student Annika Thomsen participated in The OCR World Championships that took place 14-16 of october in Canada. She really enjoys this sport and is having fun with the hard training. She took the race with storm and became the fastest runner in her age group with the time 1:59:51.

She also participated in the team relay where 3 athletes team up and compete in speed, strength and technigue. Their team won the gold medal.

But the most desired challenge is keeping the OCR wrist band. It signifies that you complete every obstacle on the run. You can get through the race and win gold even though you loose the band. So keeping the band (and winning gold) is one of the hardest challenges that Annika with proudness could bring home to Denmark.


Having fun and enjoying what you do, can get you far!
