Our discussion was nothing short of electrifying, encompassing everything from the thrilling realm of Obstacle Racing to their remarkable journey following the OCR European Championships held in Hungary.
Ida Mathilde, a reigning European 3k Champion from the picturesque town of Tata, Hungary, boasts an impressive array of titles collected from various Championships. She stands proudly as one of the foremost female OCR athletes on the global stage. Complementing her prowess, we have Thomas Johansson, not only her personal mentor and coach but also the esteemed coach of the Danish National Team. Thomas is a dedicated former pro mma fighter with a winner mentality – an architect of Ida’s succes.
Venturing from the vibrant city of Copenhagen to the enchanting city of Gdańsk, these two phenomenal individuals granted us insight into the enthralling world of Danish Obstacle Racing.

But wait, there’s more! Our rendezvous with Ida and Thomas wasn’t confined to mere conversations. We injected thrill into the mix with a grip test – with an electronic strenght gauge and the brick/kettlebell hold . As if that wasn’t enough, we embarked on an invigorating training session at our very own club, the pulsating hub of action – www.ninjaarena.pl. The adventure continued with a jaunt to a nearby park, where we marveled at our imposing outdoor RIG – the T-Rex (publicly available training structure – our production). And what’s a memorable encounter without indulging in a delectable dinner that tantalized the taste buds?
