General
COMPETITIVE EDGE
She says COVID-19 mandated quarantine in 2020 that resulted in the postponement of competitions fuelled her competitive drive. "I have always considered myself more of a trainer than a competitor. When the big competitions were cancelled, I noticed, however, that it was a big motivator. As I get older, I have learned to enjoy competing and that feeling of pressure." (ts.fi, 11 Feb 2021)
