[This is Part 2]
There were 12 women in the solo division, and I desperately wanted to make the top 10. I actually held a small hope in my heart that I would get on the podium, in the top-3. It was possible, but I held first and second place for Pua Sawicki and Jari Kirkland – two amazing women who are first place champions who can beat most of the men in these races. That left me to fight for third.
