A 5 days mega competition where all the events are secret even until the last minute. Now - Lucy made it to the games this year as a rookie and has just, this August, been crowned the 16th FITTEST WOMAN IN THE WHOLE FUCKING WORLD> She’s a baby but competing with giants and she still managed to actually WIN 2 whole events even.
