“The race went just fine. Of course, my own record warms up, but it may not have been as clean a run as in Jyväskylä at the time, although time improved. A little came on the fences. ”

“Going further than last time in Turku, it’s always a positive thing. I scared myself there too, but now I was able to pair the hubby with a pile of anesthetics, needles, tape and cortisone. Every kind of gimmick was used, ”Mörö told Yle.
“The business is medicine. It has to be pressed if it can. ”
