Introducing BDO's sponsored player Henrik Porkka
21 November 2018
Volleyball player Henrik Porkka has been described in sporting circles as the most promising middle blocker in Finland, and no wonder when one looks at his achievements. 20-year-old Porkka plays his third season in the Volleyball League Championship, and he is part of the Finnish national team. Porkka was chosen for the Finnish men's volleyball national team in spring 2016, although he did not play any of the Finnish league matches before the election. In addition, Porkka won the Finnish Championships gold in the A-juniors of the volleyball team twice in 2015 and 2016 and was selected for the All Stars group at both finals. During the current season, Porkka plays in the Hurrikaani-Loimaa team, where he transferred from Leka Volley of Kuopio in summer 2018.
With co-operation towards dreams
BDO supports young, talented athletes who, by their example, show what a long-term job can accomplish. Henrik Porkka is one of BDO's sponsored players in the 2018–2019 season.
- In the spring after graduating from high school, I took a step towards a professional career, and started my principal training in Hurrikaani. The goal of the next few years is to gain a stronger role in the league, after which I have set my sights on international rings. BDO's support has been both for my club and for me personally a significant backing at this early stage of my professional career - and it will certainly benefit to achieve the later goals as well!
We wish Henrik and the whole Hurrikaani-Loimaa team good luck for the current season!
