NEXT STOP: PODIUM. HOW CROSS-COUNTRY SPRINTER KALLE GETS INTO THE ZONE

“It was dark and scary in the forest,” remembers Kalle – “so I gave all I had to stay close to my dad.” That’s how sprinter careers are made. After a few top placements, Kalle has zeroed in on his next career goal: top spot on the podium. What does he need to do for that? Get into his zone. The Finn gets there with music: “If I hadn’t become a cross-country skier, I’d definitely be a professional musician.” He still wants to work on his energy management on race days. He loves finding new solutions to the same question: What makes me even faster on snow?
