Moments before the Rio Olympics -On the way to Rio with Satu Mäkelä-Nummela

Jenni Westerlund (info a, 13 July 2016

Nordkalk has been cooperating with the Finnish Olympic gold medal winner in Trap shooting, Satu Mäkelä-Nummela, for many years. Last year 2015, Satu managed with superb performances to secure a place for Finland, and for herself, in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil 5.-21. August 2016. We have an excellent chance to follow Satu's journey to Rio as she will keep us posted on her training and preparing for the big event once a month.

Moments before the Rio Olympics

Warm Italian city Desenzano welcomed us as the European Championship battlefield in early July. The sun was warm and nice, but during the shootings it got a little bit too hot.

The competition was held in the Lonato shooting range and our accommodation was located on the beach of Garda in Desenzano. A few small errors in the shootings left me out from the semifinal rerun. Luckily I had the chance to experience the semifinals just before midsummer in the Baku World Cup. There I reached the semifinals specifically through reruns which led to a victory.

The winning of the World Cup gave me more self-confidence and faith - "here I come!"

The Rio Olympics will be tight and a hard fought race for sure. If successful, anyone can pick up the golden medal. I will return to Italy to shoot one more race before the departure to Rio, which is July 28.

I wish you all pleasant summer days and happy moments with the Rio Olympics, either on-site or at home.

Warm and sunny regards,
