Anne Haug

Last year’s runner-up Anne Haug is ‘hungry’ for THECHAMPIONSHIP: ,,Favorites can fail, while underdogs can grow beyond their limits”

CHALLENGEFAMILY‘s THECHAMPIONSHIP is promising to be one of the most exciting races of the year. With a stunning pro field for both men and women, the event promises to be a spectacle for both athletes and spectators alike. Anne Haug, the runner-up of last year’s edition, is coming back to Samorin and is hungry for victory.

,,It’s such a competitive start field again, so I have to race my absolute best to be on top. I would never underestimate anyone. It’s the beauty of this sport that nothing is predictable. Favorites can fail, while underdogs can grow beyond their limits. For me, THECHAMPIONSHIP is an amazing race because I can compete against the best in my sport. That is exactly what I want to do. I have to be in the best shape possible.”

It’s not just the strong pro field that attracts Haug to THECHAMPIONSHIP, there are many more reasons why she is looking forward to race this iconic event. ,,There are so many things that make this race unique to me. There’s the stunning location and the perfect organization. The race course, although it’s completely flat, is very challenging as well. And of course, last but definitely not least, it’s the quality of athletes racing.”

Haug is hoping that her current shape will hold. ,,This year I had a few niggles over the winter and things didn’t go as smooth as last year. But that’s sport and you have to deal with it. On race day, I will give it my all and see what this day holds for me.”
