Instagram: @lifteranni

How & why did you start:

I used to play ice hockey for years. Even as an adult, I played ice hockey for 10 years. After a head injury, I quitted. I only started weightlifting because a friend of mine Kristiina Junttu persuaded me to try it out. I had the mobility and for example squat technique so there was potential to compete in my age group.

Your coolest sport memory:

One of the coolest memories is from ice hockey times; we played penalty kill with only three people left and managed to keep the division win. The second memory is from last year when I won the Finnish Championship in weightlifting.

Your biggest goal:

At the moment, my biggest goal is to improve my weightlifting technique. Everything else comes after that.

Motto:

It bends, yet not breaks.

  8. My favourite season is summer.
