I am a member of the Riigikogu for a second term, a mother of two as well as a double Olympic winner. I have a master's degree in economics. I have worked hard for my goals for all my life, and I am always ready to face new challenges with the same commitment. 
I see it as my mission to promote the health and exercise of the Estonian people and children in particular. It will depend on us how healthy, long, and happy a life the next generations will be able to lead. If the Estonian people have a strong health, the Estonian state will also have a strong health.
