Moi Juho! Let's get to know you a bit. When did you start in NC and how did it come about?
I am 8 year's old school boy. I live with my parents and my brother in Siilinjärvi. I started NC in January 2013. Our neighbour's boy had a habit of NC and I liked to watch when he trained. My father noticed an advertisement in a newspaper which told that a ski jumping school started in Siilinjärvi and that they want new members. I wanted to go and try. It was really fun and I liked it a lot.
You've been on quite some podiums in this winter's Lidl-Cup – what are your thoughts about the season?
The season has been good and I am satisfied.
I've been told that the athletes from SiiPo often go on training camps during the summer. Have you been to one of those? If so, what is it like?
I have been at SiiPo's training camps during the summers of 2013 and 2014. We have trained techniques, had playful contests and went swimming. They were very good and our coaches did good work for us.
Would you like to become a professional NC athlete in the future?
I like NC very much and I would like to become a NC athlete in the future.
Well, then I wish you all the best and hope to hear from you again, kiitos!
