Priceless Prise - To Norseman winner Eidilh Prise it`s all an adventure
There is no athlete that comes to Norseman without already having a long journey of training and hard work behind them. When the media team sat down with 26-year-old Scottish athlete Eidilh Prise ahead of the 2022 race though, we knew we had found someone special. Instead of following a training plan she goes on ‘adventures’… Instead of a coach driving her, it’s her pure love of the mountains that spurs her on. Instead of putting on a steely race face, she draws energy from cheering and laughing along with her supporters. Of course, on race day, we saw just how magical this approach could be – but for now, it was our opportunity to chat how it felt to be a double-record-holder at Celtman – and just how excited she was about facing the mighty mountains here in Norway.
