Having won the 2019 Finnish national championship and earning an invite to his first United States Disc Golf Championship, teen Finn Oskari Vikström had a big season and has been rewarded with a two-year contract extension with sponsor Discmania through 2021.
“Oskari’s game at this point is strikingly similar to that of Simon and Eagle in their teens,” said Jussi Meresmaa, CEO of Discmania. “It’s still hard to believe that Oskari is only 16 years old. I see him making big moves on the international scene in the upcoming year or two.”
The comparisons to the Crush Boiz aren’t far off on the distance front. Vikström made it to the final four of this year’s USDGC distance showcase. Vikström is currently 1015-rated, down two points from his career high set in August of 2019.
