The Skinny on JJ

Joonas has been throwing rocks since he learned to walk. JJ was a straight-up baller in his youth, playing hockey, gymnastics, golf and soccer, but his true love has always been bowling. At the age of 18, JJ was selected to represent the Finish youth national team, winning the Silver in 2003. In 2009 he was the Player of the Year in the Finish national league, following that up with a 2010 Dream Team selection.

JJ likes to spend his free time with friends and family, including his 2 year-old son, Otso…”the greatest kid in the world.” He also likes to listen to music, mostly techno, and dares anyone to step to him on the dance floor. An up-and-comer in national competition, you’re likely to see JJ bowling on the EBT. But look out, he soon plans to take his talents to the PBA.
