Now I am not only very happy, I am also very proud, look what I found out…..

and the prize...!

and the prize...!

what a great feeling
what a great feeling

I was the only woman from the Nordic countries on the podium in Kona 2009 :-)
There was no other scandinavian woman in the professionals nor in any of the age groups. The feeling, when I heard my name, and went up on the podium in front of about 2000 people, to get my price, was fantastic. Again i felt very gratefull, to have the chance to compete against so many good athletes, in such an event. It was truly a complete feeling, to stand on the podium in Kona.

Even better, as I heard a woman shouting “juhuuuu…Kaisa”, and I was sure that it was Neri, the wonderful wife of Craig Aleksander. That was really cool of hear, because there was not many I knew in the crowd in front of me.

Again thank you  for all my friends, sponsors, volunteers and race directors, that were there for me that day. I am greatful for this day, as it ended up to be one of the best races of my life so far!
