Prior to the event, both students trained very hard. They described their training as intense, long, and tough. They would train four times a week and spend around three to five hours in the gym. They also had to keep watch of their weight as they needed to maintain a certain weight to be able to participate in the qualified weight class. Both also mentioned that their friends pushed and inspired them to compete.
Congratulations, Stefanie and Timothy! Enderun is proud of you both!
