Meet Team Sirius Athlete Kaisa Lehtonen
When Kaisa’s father told her about a race really far away from Finland in a place called the Hawai´ian Islands she immediately wanted to see if she could do it. The only problem was that she was only a twelve year old girl. After some weeks of begging, she got permission to try one of the three disciplines – the 180 km / 112 miles of cycling. So one beautiful summer day she took her pink mountain bike and rode the whole distance to her grandparents house. During this ride she felt in her heart that this sport would bring lots of joy into her life – this ignited the passion that has been growing ever since.
In 2015, after several years of racing at the olympic distance Kaisa decided to follow her childhood dream and focus on long distance racing. With Finnish “sisu”, which stands for extraordinary determination, courage and resoluteness in the face of extreme adversity, she has claimed her spot amongst the top triathletes in the world and now wants to find out how fast and strong she can become.
