Just because they go all out when they’re wrestling doesn’t mean that Jaana and Bettan aren’t still best friends. It’s simple: A wrestler can only improve by training with a strong partner, and Jaana is set on making the jump to the advanced squad. Alas, Bettan appears to have chosen this of all moments to lose her focus a bit. Instead of training she prefers to try out a couple new dance moves. She even lets a boy beat her at practice!
