Rising Star - May 2012
A fast five minutes with Kaisa Pajusalu...
Twenty three-year-old Estonian rower Kaisa Pajusalu is one of the fastest women in the world on the indoor rowing machine. She first represented Estonia on the world stage at the 2004 Junior World Rowing Championships. In the eight years since her debut she has become a Junior World Champion and a two-time Under-23 World silver medallist. She now has her sights set on racing at the 2012 Olympic Games as she looks to qualify the women’s single scull at the Final Olympic Qualification Regatta this month.
I row because… It seems to me that I am at the right place and it’s the biggest challenge for me right now.

My favourite training session is… Long distance running, rowing and cross country skiing.
My toughest race… All races are pretty tough but thankfully I forget that when I cross the finish line.
I’m motivated by... My dreams.
I get annoyed when… People complain too much!
I study… Agricultural Production and Marketing in the Estonian University of Life Sciences.
My favourite food is... Hmm…I don’t have a favourite food but after long camps I love to eat Estonian food like meat sauce, baked potatoes, blood sausage, sauerkraut, black bread etc.
My favourite book is... I have so many of them, but if I had to choose one then it would be The Six Bullerby Children by Astrid Lindgren.
My favourite movie star is… Maybe Tom Hanks; I liked his role as Forrest Gump.
My favourite website is… It would have to be Facebook.
I’m afraid of… Being late and losing things. And what do I do best? Be late because I have lost something!

At the London Olympics I am definitely going to be watching… Rowing and athletics!
