Jaanus is a construction worker from Estonia who has always believed that sports make people healthier and also enable the positive experience of friendly competition and the spirit of togetherness. He is the father of pentathlon championships for non-professionals, encouraging everyone to come out and try his or her skills and endurance. During the 14 years that Jannus has organised his pentathlon competitions, thousands of people who have not had much to do with sports in the past have taken part, and that makes it one of the biggest annual amateur sports events in Estonia. Jaanus started up the movement to prove that a great athlete can be found in any of us, just as long as that athlete is provoked into action. The Olympic torch, as a symbol of peace, solidarity and willpower, is similar to Jaanus, who can be thanked by the Estonian people for having brought a little bit of the Olympic spirit into their lives.
