How did you get started in the sport?
I am trained as a medical doctor here in Finland. Powerlfiting is much different thing than being a doctor, but I love it. After meeting Zahir I began to train with heavy powerlifting.
Proudest Sporting Achievement?
It is breaking the 82.5 kg weight class All-Time World Record total (raw with wraps) in 2015, when the record was more than 10 years old and held by Jill Mills. Since then I have had shoulder surgery, but I love this sport and have recovered back to training and competing high level.
What are your competetive goals in the next 5 years?
To gain more muscle mass, and go on to break some of the long-standing records held in higher weight classes. I look forward to competing at a different bodyweight and its different challenges and different compeititors.
Why choose Harris?
Support. Harris supports myself and husband Zahir, our KP Gym and our KP Gym team. I always use harris equipment when I train so I want to use it on competition days. And though I squat raw with knee wraps, I like their comp-stiff kneesleeves to keep my knees warm here in Finland.
