ProVictoria Team

TRIATHLON

How long have you been competing?

Team has been established in October 2016 but competition has been in our veins since birth.

Where do you call home?

All of our team members live currently in Oulu, capital of northern Finland.

Favorite event or place to practice?

This must be Joroinen, our version of Kona where half distance race has been organized for over 30 years. Joroinen was the 1st triathlon race in Finland.

What do you like best about your sport? 

We love pushing ourselves beyond the limits that we previously thought were unachievable.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you while doing your sport?

Being chased by reindeers on a road (those are usually very friendly, and yes, Oulu is far north J)

Do you have a claim to fame (fittest, fastest, funniest, smelliest, etc.)? 

Despite the small team, we are the most successful and probably craziest team in the country.

Do you promote an annual event or are you involved in a charitable cause?

We support people with handicaps who want to pursuit their dreams in paratriathlon.  

Any notable recent results?

As the team is just established we don’t have results yet (as a team). However, our team members won 9 medals in Finnish national championship races last summer.

Anything else we should know about you or your sport?

 We are group of passionate triathletes who established own team that enables  next step to become more successful in our sport. Although we continue to aim high, at the same time our team is founded on desire to have fun with other like-minded triathletes while pursuing our personal goals.
