We have become used to Therese Johansen adding 8A's, 8A+'s and even the odd 8B to her already impressive tick list.
Now it's about time we add another name to watch out for: 19 year old Maria Davies-Sandbu from Trondheim, Norway.
Recently she joined Therese in Rocklands and it didn't take long before she did her first 8A there Out of balance, which was later followed by Au bord de l'eau. This brings her grand total of 8A's to four.
