The Weak Gender / 'Silpnoji Lytis'

Ausrine Pranskaityte, 19, grew up in Draginiu village in northern Lithuania with her mother and seven siblings, and is now enrolled to Shipping School in Klaipeda. Her father died while working in Spain eight years ago. “During the training, boys who broke psychologically went home immediately - it’s sad that they broke quicker than the girls,” she said. Ausrine tore her ankle ligaments in the training, but pulled through the last two weeks suffering from excruciating pain.
