Finland's Airi Mikkelä: Would you sponsor a Rio 2016 dream?
Why is your ambition so important in your life? The answer is pretty simple, it is something you need in your life.
Ambition is something that one requires in different walks of life; family, career. One of the greatest things to do in life is fulfilling dreams. In order to achieve this, you need an ambition - the desire to do it.
Airi Mikkelä is a perfect example of someone living every day of her life with an ambition, her aspiration to make her mark in the sports of badminton. Over the past few years Airi has dedicated most of her time to training and playing in order to make it the Rio 2016 Olympics. She has participated in competitions all over the world, especially in the year 2015 with several podium positions and an improved world ranking. Airi is doing so well that she is quite confident about making it to Rio next year. To confirm a placement for RIO, it is mandatory to get as high in the World ranking as possible, and for Airi that requires 10 good results. So far this year she has produced 6 good results with several tournaments yet to come.
Airi has also made it to the Denmark Open Super Series Premier, which is one of the biggest events in badminton and where there are only 32 players, including all the best players in the world.
"I still have a long way to go before next May when the qualification period ends. I am doing very well at the moment and this whole experience has already given me a lot. I've experienced amazing things, learned so much and developed a lot as an athlete. Qualifying for the Olympics is a huge dream of mine and now I feel like it's very close to coming true. To guarantee a spot in the Olympics in Rio I need to play more tournaments and I need some support to be able to do that."
