After a year it is already included in the national team, and in 2007 a girl for the first time rose to the podium, winning two bronze medals on the stages in Pokljuka and Ruhpolding. Career Kaisa developed – new season, new medals for the silver. And suddenly – a complicated knee injury. The doctors even began to prepare Mäkäräinen, what a great sport for her in the past.
