Amanda Tickner faced strong competition in the junior girls division. She skated very well her 10km points/ elimination race to finish in 4th place. When crossing the line after a dash to the line for mid-race points with the other competitors, Amanda pushed the pace and put the hurt to the other skaters! Amanda suffered through back-pains and bettered her personal best time by 2-minutes!
