OCR World Championship 2017 Team relay

Sunday it was time for the Team Relay. After doing the first team relay at the OCR European Championship this summer, I was really excited about it, the setup is so much fun.
Mica and I had decided to team up again and this time we had asked Ulrikke to join us. Ulrikke would do the technical leg, Mica the speed and I would do the strength part. All three of us had competed in the Age Group divisions on Saturday, but we had decided we wanted to run in the Pro division for the team relay, as we never get to compete against the US and Canadian elite.
