Throughout the eight events, the Finn stayed consistent and powerful across the broad array challenges. He entered the final event just one point behind Tommy Hackenbruck, but his dominant performance sealed him the victory. He completed the chipper nearly two full minutes ahead of Jason Khalipa, and the only man to finish under 20min.
In many ways, Mikko embodies the ideal virtues of a champion. He is modest, humble, focused, and unfazed by whatever is thrown at him.
