Maja Neuenschwander is a Swiss Olympian, national record holder and multiple national champion in the marathon. Her history with Nicola Spirig goes way back to their junior days in 1998 when they both ran cross-country. They trained together in St. Moritz in the lead-up to the 2012 London Olympics and have also raced each other in multiple major running events, most notably in the marathon at the 2014 European Athletic Championships. With her speedy personal bests, Maja will push Nicola to a faster marathon pace and help her take on the challenge of going Sub8.
