Mikko Kokslien, who comes from a family of winter sports enthusiasts, started being active on skies at a very early age. He seemed to be predestined for the sport of Nordic Combined as his parents met while both attending cross-country scholarships in the USA and his uncle was on the Finnish ski jumping team. But Mikko, who is half-Finnish, half-Norwegian, explored many different sports like track and field and soccer before finally committing to Nordic Combined.
While having improved vastly in ski jumping in his break-through season 2010/11, his specialty has always been the cross-country part. Because of his impressive performances on cross-country skis, his friends nicknamed him "Mikko the Machine". Generally, openness, friendliness and an always positive attitude characterize the resident of Lillehammer, Norway.
Next to being a professional athlete, his hobby is sports of all kinds. Mikko likes to play and watch ice hockey, golf and cycling. He is also a huge Liverpool FC fan. During his off time he likes to go on surfing trips around the world. He also has a charity fund called "Mikkofondet" where he works on giving out defibrillators to sports clubs.
