Former Finnish women’s national team coach Eeva Sorkkila is the twentyfirst writer in the Pajulahti 2017 blog.

Sorkkila had a long and successful spell as a Finnish head coach in the 1980s and 90s. Her time as a head coach was crowned in the 1992 Barcelona Paralympics where Finland won their first ever Paralympic gold medal in goalball.
