We want to find out more about Majlinda's life so we’ve come here to her school in Peja, which is the local technical college. We're told she’s an excellent student as well as a world-class champion – so let's go in and take a look.

1600 students are at the Ali Hadri school – most ethnic Albanians from Kosovo. Majlinda is of course the star, but there is no special treatment and her classmates appreciate her modesty.
