Where are you from: Turku, Finland
Sport: Running & CrossFit
When did you start: 2012
How & why did you start:
Before joining the army, I ran a lot after many years of track and field. In the army, I heard about CrossFit the first time. In 2012, I started my studies at Vierumäki and started to train CrossFit like at the gym. In 2015, I had the chance for the first time to join a CrossFit Box when CrossFit Lahti opened. My last CrossFit competitions were Karjalan Kovin and Unbroken in 2017.
Your coolest sport memory:
Throughout my life sport has provided me with many cool memories. One of the best memories is the team competition Unbroken in 2016. I got to compete beside my friends and share the experience with them.
Your biggest goal:
Instead of defining success around winning, my goal is to keep improving and challenge myself. Right now, I want to get into the Finnish National Championship competition in the decathlon.
Simplifying my life in one sentence doesn’t come naturally for me.
