When did you start doing Nordic Combined and what was your motivation for it?
I started doing nordic combined when I was seven years old. I had skied when I was even younger. I started ski jumping because my friend was doing it.
Do you have a role model?
My role model is maybe Johannes Rydzek.
Please tell something about yourself! What kind of person are you?
Next autumn I will start my last year at primary school at Alahärmä. After that I would like to go to high school in Vuokatti. I´m a little bit quiet - not with my friends :-). I like to practice hard. In nordic combined I do skiing better than ski jumping - at the moment.
What are your hobbies that you like to do in your free time?
I like track&field - especially long distance running. I also play the piano.
What do your friends and other people your age think about the fact that you are taking part in NC competitions?
I think my friends think I´m a little bit crazy :-) They sometimes wonder how I can be away from school so much (in training camps and in competitions).
Are you satisfied with the current development of the NC ladies in Finland and worldwide?
I wish they would invest more in ladies nordic combined in Finland. It is great that ladies nordic combined will be at Olympics.
You took the win at Hopeasompa and in the overall U15 Lidl-Cup last winter and became 2nd at the small hill national championships. Are you satisfied with your season?
I´m satisfied with what I gained last season. I´m quite satisfied with my skiing but not with my jumping. At Hopeasompa my jumping was very bad but luckily skiing went fine.
Do you have any routines at the competitions?
I must be at the competition center in good time before the competitions. Before skiing I must do very good (and long enough) warm up - that´s very important to me.
What was the best achievement of your career so far and what the biggest disappointment?
I think my best achievement was to win Hopeasompa in 2017. My biggest dissapointment was when I broke my arm at Vuokatti in New Year 2,5 years ago when I jumped HS 32-hill and I couldn´t jump for six weeks.
What are your goals as a sportswoman in general and for the next season?
I hope someday I will be at World cup and/or in Olympics. Next season I hope I can compete at Youth Cup - not only in Finland but also abroad.
