Tea Törmänen Q&A

Who was your childhood idol? Why?
I had many, but I could mention Jacques Cousteau and Dian Fossey…both did tremendous work to educate us so that we could understand nature and animals better.
Who is your biggest supporter?
My husband and my parents.
What was the first sport you ever played?
I did a lot of dancing, alpine skiing, and horseback riding as a child but not really any competitive sports. So I guess football would be the first!
What is your favorite sports memory?
The two national championships I won with my football team in Finland.
How did you get into women’s football?
I saw an ad in Finland that a team in my hometown was looking for players. Back then, we played semi-contact football with flags. Two years ago, we started playing tackle football.
What was your biggest adjustment to playing women’s football?
The helmet. It was heavy, and I felt like I couldn’t see anything.
If you could play any other position, which one would you choose? Why?
Defensive end or outside linebacker…lots of tackling, running, and contact with the blockers.
