Népra Team - Emilia Vihantola
Weightlifter from Kuopio
Emilia is a nurse and also coaches at CrossFit Kuopio
. She has changed her priority from CrossFit to weightlifting and has ambitious targets, and will compete on the world stage in weightlifting in 2018.
Emilia’s motto is: “It's not about controlling what's around you, it's about controlling what’s inside you.” These words describe her as both a person and an athlete; we admire Emilia for her peaceful, determined and hard-working attitude and mindset. She knows that the best way to go is to do things for yourself.
