Cross Country Skiing

For the last 12 years Tone has been the number one skier in the 5km and 10km distance races. Lately she has been taking big challenges by participating at the highly prestigious Norwegian Championships for the hearing, where she respectably finished ahead of the many strong and non-deaf skiers in the 5km and 10km distance races.
