Bio

I started my career as 16 years old. When i was a little boy a teacher told me that i should start running because i had so much energy back then and i runned everywhere. But my big dream then was to be a professional football player but later i realized that this maybe isn't my thing after all so i quitted. I looked for something new and one of my friends dad who was a sprint coach invited me to come train with a club called Larsmo IF back in 2009 and after my first training i was stuck. In the beginning i tried many distances from 100-1500m but i liked 200 & 400m most. 2010 i started working with coach Rune Härtull who is specialized on 400-1500m and he is also my coach even today. He have done so much for my career and i'm glad for that! I would't be here today without him! He know his stuff. It was in 2012 i really started to take this athlete career very seriously and started thinking of every single thing i could do better just to improve my running performance and come closer to my goal. In 2014 i changed club to Ik Falken. A track&field club with many coaches & good athletes who some of them have competed in WC & OG. I also changed my main distance to 800m in 2015 and i haven't regret anything! I had my best season in 2015 and i expect it's going even better in the future. I haven't represent the Finnish national team yet but i work my hardest to get a chance to do that someday! Hope you liked my story!
