Where are you from: Nurmo Seinäjoki, Finland
Sport: Javelin throw
When did you start: 2000
How & why did you start:
My dad threw javelin until I was two years old. I guess the javelin was just put in my hand too. When I was 8 years old, I had my first competition and since then, I have thrown javelin. Discus and shot were part of my training until I was 22 years old but javelin has always been my main sport. Since I was 14, I have trained according to a program.
Your coolest sport memory:
In 2016, I was in a training camp with my dad in China in very ascetic circumstances. The three weeks there were all about training and it felt hard sometimes. In my last training session, I threw 60m the very first time, and that was a special moment.
Your biggest goal:
I want to win the Olympic gold medal, and I feel I have two chances for that.
There is nothing, one can’t survive.
