Finland’s Strongest Woman 2014
On Sunday 8th June I was in Finland’s Strongest Woman competition. That was my 9th competition on Finnish Championships, I already got 3 bronzes, 2 silvers and 1 gold. Finland’s Strongest competition was 4 weeks after my last competition Scandinavian Championships.
There was 8 other strong lady to beat. I wanted to win second time this title.
At first event, power stairs were too easy weights, 60 kg and 90 kg. Four girls were close in times and I was the fourth.
Second event, pushing 200 kg wheelbarrow 20 meters. I made it as well as I could, but I lost some parts of second to Hanna who was leading competition.
Third event 80kg sack carry. I decided to win this and I won. I carried 120 meters and it was much farer than others.
In middle of competition Hanna and I were leading competition. I was runner up.
Forth Event 60 kg log lift reps in 75 second. Not good and made only 5 reps, I was fourth.
At this time gold were already far away. I was little disappointed.
Fifth event, 20 000kg house pulling were new event to me. I never believed me to win this even, because there were many bigger and stronger girls from legs than I am. But I won! My coach Janne Virtanen was giving me the best tips how to pull. Thanks to him.
Last event atlas stones without tacky. 3 smallest were 50kg and 2 biggest 80kg. Tiny stones needed to list 140cm-120cm high and heaviest to 110cm and 100cm. I like this event and made it ok. I was second.
In final scores I was second. I lost 2 points for winner. I am disappointed. It were possible to win, it was so close. But, this is sport.

My next competition will be in Norway Midnight Sun Invitational in 27th and 28th June.
