Polar Vantage V has been my second coach throughout the season. The heart rate monitoring makes sure I do every set in the right HR zone which improves the quality of training enormously. I can do high-performance sessions multiple times a week thanks to the recovery tracking system that is built into the watch. Together with the wrist heart rate, Polar OH1 and Polar Flow app, I can make sure that I am ready to give 110% in the pool, every day.
Training for over 25 hours per week for over 7 years has taught me so much about perseverance and Finnish sisu. Finding motivation through the hard times requires passion and that is why I want to enjoy and have fun in all my trainings. Too often professional athletes lose joy and passion for the sport itself and focus too much on results. Remember: every challenge is an opportunity.

Staring at the other end of the lane and repeating “every challenge is an opportunity” in my head before stepping on the start block.
