Antti Pentikäinen elected as President of the Finnish Student Sports Federation OLL for 2020 - “We have a great year ahead!”

Today, the Finnish Student Sports Federation OLL elected Aalto’s Antti Pentikäinen as the new President of the Board at the general assembly in Jyväskylä.

Pentikäinen commented his election right from the meeting: “I am delighted that I get to lead the Finnish Student Sports Federation that belongs to all of us. I also want to thank the general assembly for their expression of confidence in me. We have a great year ahead!”

OLL is an advocacy and service organisation that represents all Finnish higher education students in both national and international fields. OLL aims for students to engage in sufficient physical exercise to secure a healthy lifestyle and to be offered an adequate level of sports services at higher education institutes. AYY is one of the 33 member organisations of the Finnish Student Sports Federation.

Pentikäinen is from Tampere and now studies at Aalto University School of Business. This year, he has been responsible for social policy, municipal advocacy and sports in the Student Union Board.

“I want to lead a courageous, professional and equal federation of all higher education students. Next year, the Federation’s strategy will be updated, the Finnish Students on the Move action programme will be extended to higher education institutions and groundwork for municipal elections will be done. These are great opportunities to improve students’ well-being,” Antti describes the activities of the federation for next year.

In addition to Pentikäinen, Sanna-Maria Ahl from Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences and Nita Vallimäki from Satakunta University of Applied Sciences were elected as Vice Presidents, and Ilona Raimas from University of Helsinki and Liisa Reinola from Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences were elected as Board Members.
