After 4 intensive days in the race, Sportovia Team (Justyna Frączek, Maciek Dubaj, Maciek Mierzwa i Łukasz Warmuz) had no other option but to quit. Due to severe weakness and altitude sickness of Łukasz above 3500 m a. s. l., our team had to ask the assistance of mountain rescuers and a doctor. Łukasz is eventually alright but for some time the situation looked really scarry and dangerous.
60 teams from 25 countries gathered on Monday, December 2, on Costa Rica and Panama border, starting the biggest adventure race this year – the AR world champs. Among them, there was also our Sportovia Team, ready to face over 800 km distance.
In 3 days, ARWC will start in Costa Rica, with our Sportovia Team, current AR European champions, on the start line. Although the race organizers have been trying to keep everything in secret, we do know some details.
SPORTOVIA Team: Justyna Frączek, Maciek Dubaj, Maciek Mierzwa and Łukasz Warmuz will soon go for their long-awaited active holidays. Their win in January’s AR European Championships became their ticket to Costa Rica for the top level race.
