exercise dynamic with fins, it became somewhat tougher. Maria pushed on and
ended up at 117 meters, which was a personal record. She still had to settle
for the second place after Hilde Myhre delivered a solid 125 meters.
without fins thus became decisive for who sticks with the overall victory and
the day was not without of drama. Once again, Hilde Myhre delivered a strong
race, but the effort would cost. Hilde was unlucky and fainted. Therefore,
Maria could swim impressive 59 meters and earn another victory
With two gold and one silver, Maria was crowned as the overall winner and can proudly call herself a Norwegian champion in apnea!
would like to congratulate Maria on her NM gold!
