Find your favourite sport with Joensuu's new Services Coordinator

« Back
Joensuu now has a Sports Services Coordinator. Olga Wasenius started in her job just over a month ago. Her task is to motivate residents to take more exercise and, among other things, find the sport that best suits them.

According to Wasenius, her job consists of tasks that were previously shared by several officials. She is certain that with persistence, everyone can find a form of sport that they enjoy. Olga Wasenius herself loves American football.

– It is an incentive for me in my job to know that everyone can find their own form of sports which they love as much as I do mine, she says.

She also reminds us that it may take several attempts before realising that a particular sport suits you. The Sports Services Coordinator encourages residents to contact her if they are unsure about how to find their favourite sport. She can be contacted by e-mail at and by phone on 050 359 8661.

Wasenius welcomes everyone to sports services presentations in libraries on 29.11.–5.12. "Book gym" sessions will be held in Joensuu's central library and at the branches in Tuupovaara, Kiihtelysvaara, Eno and Pyhäselkä.
