Niki is a young and talented ski cross champion. His hard-earned achievements will be immortalized by a set of 5 Lympo sports NFT digital collectible cards. At only 25-years-old, he can take pride in his gold medal from Youth Olympics and such achievements as triumphing in the 2016 FIS Race and a double victory in the 2018 European Cup.
How did it All Begin?
Niki is an antonym of a “late bloomer”. He began his journey at age 3 when he first put on the skis. At the young age of 6, Niki participated in his first ski race and quickly realized what his life purpose was.
Ever since then, Niki has incessantly put in all his effort in training and it undeniably has paid off.
As we’ve already mentioned, Niki began skiing at a very young age. Growing up in Finland, he tried a lot of different alpine sports — from cross-country skiing to alpine skiing. However, he quickly found his true love — ski cross.
Later on, when Niki’s family moved to Switzerland in 2009, he began his professional journey. With a lot of opportunities at hand — better ski trails, trainers, more skiing competitions — Niki Lehikoinen was able to win the Swiss Coop Skicross Tour and perform in the Junior World Championships.
In 2012, he won a gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games while representing Finland. He was only 15 at the time. That same year Niki started attending Swiss Olympic Sports School — a school that grants only top alpine skiers. Everything seemed to go in the right direction but during training, Niki broke his knee.
However, Niki Lehikoinen is no quitter and the injury didn’t set him back. He continued training and in 2016, Niki became a member of the Swiss National Team. This allowed him to earn 1st place in FIS Race twice in 2016 and 2019, and another 1st place in the European Cup Men’s Ski Cross in 2019.
Although having achieved a lot, Niki doesn’t even think about slowing down.
He is setting new goals for the future. Now he is striving to participate in the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, the World Cup, and other top skiing World Championships. He is planning to achieve an Olympic Gold Medal and a World Cup victory, and we are sure he will score it.
His flaming passion and shatterproof determination will get him to the heights of ski cross. This is why we want to celebrate him by releasing a collection of his own sports collectible NFTs.
