Fourth in the Junior Finnish Championships

Emilie did well in both the Junior Finnish Championships and the Finnish Championships, which took place in Vaasa this week (November 17t-20th, 2016).

In 200 backstroke she lowered her personal best to 2:18.63 (- 3.34) and in 100 backstroke to 1:03.20 (- 1.02). In 200 backstroke she was fourth among the juniors (17 years old) and earned herself a place in the A-final, where she finally stepped up one position and ended sixth among the adults. In 100 backstroke she was eighth among the juniors and 16th among the adults, which gave her a place in the B-final for adults. In the afternoon, she then won the B-final for adults, and lowered her personal best a second time. The first time she did that was in the relay on Friday (1.04.05) and the second time on Saturday in the B-final (1.03.20).

The other girls who took part in the relay (4 x 100 medley) were Iida Reini, Ida Konkka and Roosa Mört. Their team finished fifth among the juniors (4.15.32).

Emilie also took part in 50 backstroke, where she ended 10th, and in 100 fly, where she was 12th among the juniors. Very good achievements considering her young age.
