Normet to sponsor Noora Ruskola on the road to Paris 2024 Olympics 


Professional sailor and kiter Noora Ruskola, who is aiming for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, will be sponsored by Normet on her road to Paris. From 2024, kiting in the form of kite foil racing will be a permanent Olympic discipline after it debuts in Paris that year. Noora is the first Finnish athlete to compete in this sport. 

Noora Ruskola debuted in the Rio 2016 Olympics and has since competed in Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Noora also has two Youth World Championships under her belt and several top 10 positions in World Cups.  

“I am the first and only formula kiter from Finland and the first Olympic sailor to kite at the Olympics. Passion for the sport, and having a fearless attitude, are important – I am driven to succeed and want to pave the way for many other kiters“, Noora Ruskola says.  

For us at Normet, it is great to be able to support and sponsor exuberant, goal-oriented athletes who also are courageous, caring and committed. To succeed in an extreme sport, you need to aim for extraordinary performance. As Noora Ruskola does.

Kite foil racing is a similar sport to kiteboarding with the addition of a hydrofoil under the board. The foil allows to kite along above the surface of the water.
