Julia Tuuri was elected as the President of The Finnish Student Sports Federation
Today on Thursday, the remotely held General Assembly of The Finnish Student Sports Federation (OLL) elected a new Board for 2021.
The OLL President for 2021 is Julia Tuuri (Student Union of Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences Helga). Essi Lumme (Student Union of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences METKA) and Jorma Alastalo (Student Union of Tampere University TREY) were elected as vice presidents. In addition, Anna Salo (Zone Sport Services) was elected as Board Member. The newly elected representatives will begin their work in January.
“During the pandemic and during recovery, the expertise of The Finnish Student Sports Federation is needed more than ever. I am very excited to get to lead the OLL team towards these challenges”, the new President Julia Tuuri says.
The General Assembly also approved the OLL Plan of Work and Budget for 2021, and the Strategy for 2021‒2023. In addition to the municipal elections, some central themes for 2021 are expanding Higher Education on the Move to new higher education institutions, and planning and implementing the FSHS (Finnish Student Health Service) exercise theme years. The strategy defines inspiration, communality and responsibility as OLL:s values.
“Next year, a lot will happen that will make an impact on student sports and student well-being. In the spring, municipal elections will be held, where OLL especially emphasises promoting cycling and increasing the accessibility of exercise facilities and the availability of time slots. Cooperation between organisations also stands out in municipal advocacy”, the future President predicts.
General Assembly statement: After the corona pandemic, student sports needs money, no cuts
The General Assembly published a statement in which OLL demands higher education institutions to secure funding for student sports in spite of and because of the corona crisis. A wide range of sports services promote the sense of community, health and coping of students – precisely those areas of well-being threatened by the coronavirus crisis.
Active operators in the field of higher education and student sports were rewarded at the General Assembly. The Flame of the Year (Vuoden Liekehtijä) prize for active contribution to student sports was awarded to Tea Sissonen, a specialist from Student Union of Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences Helga.
The OLL Trophy, the annual prize donated by FSHS, was awarded to the organizers of SELL Games 2020 Lahti. The games had to be canceled at the very last minute because of the corona. The organizers planned and organized the competitions, which would have renewed the almost hundred-year-old tradition of SELL Games and shaped the competitions into a student-like sporting event.
OLL congratulates the new Board wholeheartedly and thanks everyone who took part in the General Assembly!
