Terve Jussi! Let's get to know you a bit. Which character traits make you who you are?
I think I'm happy... [laughs]. I always try to find positive things in my life!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I like to read books aaand watch Netflix... [laughs] and being with my friends. Nothing special...
Are you doing anything besides the sport, for example studying?
At the moment, I'm not doing anything besides the sport. I'm not studying yet.
Do you want to?
Yeeah, not exactly... at the moment I want to do only sports and see what I can get.
When and how did you start in Nordic Combined?
I started NC when I was about 11. I have always been doing cross-country skiing and when I was 11 I went to a skijumping hill for the first time and tried that.
You have been competing in the COC for quite some years now and in the last 2 seasons you have stabilized yourself in the Top20's. How satisfied are you with these results and where do you want to go in the future?
At the moment, I'm not so much satisfied with my results [laughs]. In these two years it was getting better all the time and that's a good thing. But in this season I thought that I should be in the Top10 all the time but that didn't happen... maybe this weekend! I hope so... But it is getting better. And of course the Lahti Ski Games are a big goal for the next year and of course the Olympic Games. It is even a bigger goal because Lahti is coming really soon...
