Last night the athlete of the year in Central Ostrobothnia was awarded, by kepli.fi (Central Ostrobothnian Sports Federation).
I was awarded as “the woman athlete of the year”.
My father was representing me at the sports gala. He was the best person to do that. When I was 14 years old and started to compeete in cycling he was the one to drive me around the whole country to different races. My mother was cooking and made the food ready just to heat up. Everything was so well organized and they did all this for me.
A part of this award belongs to my parents. Without their support I would have never reached what I have reached in sports until now. Thank you mum and dad!
