Perspective: Jyväskylä troubled where the suburbs grew up a juvenile delinquent - but there efforts also Matti Nykänen
It was used in thousands and thousands of hours, that Matti would learn to succeed, but no one ever taught him to fail, writes Matti Nykänen life close to her young until followed the journalist Sami Lotila.Matti Nykänen photographed in 1992. IL-ARCHIVE

was characterized by young age, that he could not be alone.

This was, of course, huutavassa inconsistent with it, that he chose sports just ski jumping. Hill hyppääjähän carried out precisely alone.

Bob had always someone with him, even when he pärisytti scooter – or was it a lightweight motorcycle – around Jyväskylä fabric of the ponds and especially the current Pit area, which is mid-70s until there was a garrison area, where the use was at night military exercises.

my Family lived at that time matt's family on the same street fabric pond. We were almost neighbors, the distance was only a hundred meters. Fabric pond was of Jyväskylä the first divorce in the suburbs. The name came from the fact that single mothers changed their children to the new suburbs, which got pretty easily even large rental housing, and housing support. Matti Nykänen was in the sense of exception, that he had an intact home and both parents, without him, with them never to see either. Matti was with his friends, or the top of the hill. It was known that his father was a taxi driver.

Troubled areas

Family Nykänen had lived in the past couple of kilometres from jyväskylä to the fabric of the mountain, which was at least as troubled growth environment as the fabric of the pond. These streets grew up a juvenile delinquent, but fortunately, they only weight for also talented athletes. 70 in Jyväskylä, the best athletes came from those same suburbs, which were the social problems are accumulated, i.e. canvas lining-fabric pond and helmet hill-Köhniö. Sports have many of the young people even so such as the straight and narrow. Internetköön not yet been taking young people's free time.

the Level was hard in all the sports, and start driven ski jumper Matti Nykäseen attached greater attention. Jyvaskyla's suburbs were filled with the Finnish champions in strength sports, boxing, wrestling, body building, ice hockey... Many of these hard-bitten jannuista cleared their way to the top of the world, such as Trenton, new power , Jyrki Savolainen , Raimo Summanen . Eventually Matt came in, however, the most brightest star, to everyone's surprise.

Matti practiced a lot and I saw him occasionally working out late at night local huhta marsh school gym. This was still the time when Matti was too young for pub life, so he was at the gym, often on Friday evenings. He was lean, but surprisingly strong. I remember how he did with discipline and over a series of ski jumper of the basic movement of the squat and jump, and the pole she was 60 pounds. In fact he weighed less.

the weight room, too, Matti had never been alone, always was involved with some guy, or coach. Matti didn't talk at the gym never anyone on the outside and many think it is due to the concentration, but I think it was shyness. I know Matt so much, that I know him extremely shy and insecure young man. Probably the only place where Matti was not in doubt, was on the jump tower. Possible, however, that he was uncertain there, too.

Fate sealed

matt's sister was in my parallel class, and not ever talk about his brother. I remember that sister smiled a lot and was restless, like Matti. Matt is the school interested and he will Jyväskylä notorious Suvimäen to observe the school. Suvimäen had a reputation that if you are not restless and school kammoksuva already, so there you certainly will become. Taulumäen flank located Suvimäki fear, and were not school kids dared to pass it over. Thus, sometimes from afar, how Matti played Suvimäen in the courtyard, ping-pong and cursed loudly always fails. His fate was in this stage probably already sealed, both good and evil.

Local small ”Karmitsan” hill-Matti moved to jump Jyväskylä Laajavuori, which was one of Finland's ski jumping look like little houses. Although Finland did was ski jumping in the well, not to jump been, at least in Jyväskylä, any glamour. This I get to witness with my own eyes, as I went wide in the mountain often and later I get there for a summer internship. Ski jumper to do was to jump and to obey the coach and follow their bosses, and keep his mouth shut, period. This sapluunaan Matti is very suitable, because he was in silence into the the most beautiful voices.

my first Assignment I think it was a broad mountain of a big hill, which at this stage was already named Matti Nykänen a hill, to maintain the. Hill ran the Jyväskylä sports agency, which was given nykänen to protect the jobs of the hill champion. Matti success still, but also drank hard. Not her summer seen large in the mountain at any other time than once a day at lunch time, when he popped up the hill in the service building in the bathroom. He became a fine sports car and the smell of the previous night of booze a mile away. He was nice and sympathetic to all of us ”subordinates” section and say hello, always before I drive again on your own.

City nightlife

jyväskylä's nightlife in the Flask became a kind of attraction even before his drinking began to speak and write of the kingdom in the media. The city he was in a negative sense. His bar round the end nightclub in the town hall basement, but always not getting in. Liquor drunk Matti was unpredictable and aggressive, and I saw the town hall basement in front of the light signal after Matti made by things I don't even want to remember. Part of those things would have taken Bob to court.

Alcohol didn't agree with Matti, and her pushing was. The fabric of the pond a long time he had been still some real friends, but now they had a new drink strap. I always wondered that why no one ever said directly that Nykänen is an alcoholic. It's what he was. He was sick and needed help more than I got.

Bob's second problem was that he always had to be the best in everything which he undertook, be it moped, sports or a bar life. If he feels that he can be some of the best, so he did not take it at all.

It was used in thousands and thousands of hours, that Matti would learn to succeed, but no one ever taught him to fail.

youth a year after I met Bob many times in his gig in their back rooms, and a couple of times I went to his home, or in the apartment that he called home. I was actually going to his last gig to Helsinki, but I finally had the chance. I thought it was great that Matti was received in the end of his life even rel dest order. His efforts eventually further than I could believe the 90 stripping the hazing period.
