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.
