Borre Viking market is a fantastic arrangement. Highly authentic, with lots of traders, workshops, and entertainment, it's one of the best Viking markets in the world.
Just as it was in the Viking Age, the glima competition will be held on a grass area, surrounded by an eager audience. This championship will have some of the best Viking wresters in Norway, as well as competitors from Europe.
Congratulations to Oda Solbakken (15) on winning the women's division at the Borre Glima Championship. This was Oda's first competition, and she did the Academy proud, winning all her matches and showing Viking courage and determination.
