“The atmosphere in Jyväskylä is inspiring for both athletes and exercisers. Students and athletes create a nice mix. In Jyväskylä, the best thing for an athlete is the fact that moving from one place to another has been made very easy. It is nice to move around by bike or by walking and everything is close by. This lifestyle is very important for an athlete - when your home, training places, sports massage and lunch spots are all close by. Most of the time, I can be spotted around the city, just driving around by bike and moving from place to place. That is the best everyday life in the capital of sport.”
