Check out this young skier’s wonderful journey in a candid interview with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You started competing in cross-country skiing in 2007 and have been performing tremendously well ever since. Walk us through this spectacular journey and tell us how it all began?
Ms. Krista Pärmäkoski:
I have been doing skiing since my childhood, but I started competing at the age of 12. I come from a small town named Ikaalinen, and I have always been very active and helped my dad in all duties he had at our farm. I can still remember for example when it was time to carry stones away from the fields. Stones about the size of my head I carried by my own hands, the bigger ones were moved by my dad by tractor. I believe that is where my guts and strength come from. I have always learned to work hard and do the work as good as possible.
