Tanja Poutiainen—Finland’s most successful female alpine skier of all times—started skiing at the age of three.
During her career, she won multiple alpine skiing competitions, including the World Cup in slalom and giant slalom as well as Olympic silver medal in giant slalom.
”Success is never a guarantee of future success” says Tanja, instructing the younger generation of athletes. She believes humble attitude and persistent, focused training to be the key to success: ”Everyone out there works really hard. An athlete simply cannot afford to slack off.”
The right kind of gear plays an equally important role. Therefore Poutiainen has collaborated with Halti since 1999.
She wears Halti everywhere she goes: jogging, the gym and golf course. On her free time she loves to relax in Halti hoodies and t-shirts.
Tanja’s top 3 favorite Halti products:
1. Sofshell jackets
”Halti jackets are perfect for my needs. I always wear one when I’m skiing. They’re good for layering, too.”
2. Backpacks and bags — such as the Stadion 45 gym bag
”Halti bags and backpacks are great gym and weekend bags. I also love the color selection.”
3. Kvarnby jacket
”All-weather jacket with a good fit. Pink is my favorite color way.”www.tanjapoutiainen.com
