I was born in 1990 in Rakvere, Estonia. Me and my family moved to Tallinn in 1993. I spent my childhood under the Nõmme pines playing football or basketball with my friends. My first exposure to weightlifting happened in 2003, so the beginning of my weightlifting career could be considered to be the age of 13, when more consistent trainings began under my father's supervision. I can still remember my first competition I took part in. I achieved the 7th place and lifted 70 kg in total.
As I mentioned, I started my trainings under the supervision of my father Alar Seim, who has been my coach ever since. We mostly train in Tallinn in the fitness club Sparta. Our strategy from the start has been to build up the strength step by step, in order to secure a long and steady career. We do not believe in fast and easy solutions.
My best result so far has been the 4th place in the World Championships held in Alamty in 2014, where I lifted 431kg (185kg +246kg) in total.
My main goal right now is to get a medal at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016 and at the same time set the world record for clean and jerk.
