Great start for cooperation between Teknikum and Finnish Gymnastics Federation

The Finnish Gymnastics Federation’s Men’s Artistic Gymnatics team joined the Teknikum All Stars program in September 2021.

The Teknikum All Stars scholarship program supports goal-directed activities of young people in countries where Teknikum operates. The scholarship program is part of Teknikum Group’s corporate responsibility strategy.

The aim of the cooperation with Men’s artistic gymnatics is to support the coaching and competition activities of the national team, such as training camps and development work. The men’s national gymnastics team currently includes a total of 47 gymnasts. The national team consists of the men’s national team (11 gymnasts), the youth national team group (14 gymnasts) and the under-14 national team group (22 gymnasts). From the beginning, the cooperation was based on a common world of values, goals and denominators – including the will to succeed internationally in fierce competition.

Just after his bronze medal routine in the final, Mr. Soravuo commented to the inteviewer of Finnish Gymnastics Federation:

“I still can’t understand what just happened. I did better in the finals today than many others, and it was rewarded. Maybe sometime in a week or a month I will realize what I did. There is nothing more to say than that the feeling is really happy now.”

As a sponsor, Teknikum looks forward to see what kind of bright things the future holds for Mr. Soravuo and for the whole national team of exceptionally hard working and talented gymnasts.
