Mariann Sather Norwegian kayaker

The World Freestyle KayakChampionships are running this week in Germany.  This week's blog-posts are dedicated to the crazy women who run rivers, and love the white water.

Norwegian Mariann Sather is one of the women to watch at this tournament. Sather has been competing for ten years, while fitting in degrees in English, Spanish and Norwegian on the side - usually distance learning as she's competed in 50 countries so far. She has an inspiring view on life, one that certainly made me think it's time to do more with my days.

"To write is almost as big of a passion as kayaking, as well as helping people realize that normality is what you determine it to be. To roam the rivers of the earth,  teach at the local school or jet-set around the globe, we all carry dreams that have the potential to become reality."

This footage was shot on a trip to Corsica in May this year.
