2nd Place, Jens Juul, Danish
The atmosphere is good and there is loud music playing in the gym in Copenhagen where the elite gymnastics girls train for up to 20 hours a week. You have to if you want to participate at the elite level, and they do. As a rule of thumb you have to put in at least 10,000 hours of training to compete internationally. Doing gymnastics you primarily fight yourself; your fears, doubts and pain, but the youngsters help and encourage each other. It might be a lone battle, but they fight it side by side.
