The World Games: -What else should I go for than victory?

Posted on | July 17, 2009 | Category: News

Minna Kauppi is aiming high at The World Games. She wants to be the very best. Of course, it is something you’d expect from the woman who has won the last three World Cup races.

-My goal? That is to win to all three gold medals. What else should I go for, Minna smiles.

The Finn is the big favourite before the Games in Kaohsiung. She has shown incredible strength this season, and she is well prepared for the competitions. The whole Finnish team had a couple of extra days in Hong Kong to get used to the heat, the humidity and the time difference. A lot of the other teams went directly to The World Games without any extra day.
