Népra Team - Anni Jääskeläinen

Weightlifter from Helsinki

Anni, from Helsinki, plays and teaches trumpet for her profession, but since 2016 she is a passionate weightlifter and has competed in Finnish and European Championship Competitions. She says that it was love at the first snatch!

Anni has done weightlifting only for two years and but finished an impressive fourth in the European Championship W35 -69kg. She is a real-life example that it is never too late to start with competitive sports! It is funny to follow Anni’s life on Instagram as her days are filled with playing her instrument, weightlifting, and two cups of coffee.
