    I think you mean 2012 not 2008 in the past winners section.

  2. Admin says:

    no, i do mean 2008. Since 2008 a member of the Fierce Five team has been on either the Junior or Senior Podium.

  3. Rien says:

    Elizabeth price said she was competing two events, has she since withdrawn or is her name just missing?!
