Väinö Mäkelä Joins Innova’s Team Champion

Team Innova keeps getting stronger—in Europe! Väinö Mäkelä, one of the best-known and most-beloved disc golfers in Europe, will be proudly wearing Innova wings from here on out. 

When Väinö started playing disc golf back in 2010, his first discs were an Innova Starter Set: A DX Aviar, DX Shark, and DX Leopard. Since then, his arm speed has increased just a bit, so he’ll be bagging the KC Aviar, Roc3, and a TeeBird instead. Whichever molds, we are happy to have Väinö with Innova discs back in his hands. We know he’ll do them justice. 

When I started disc golf, I started with Innova discs. My first owned discs were Innova. My first hole in one was with Innova. This is special.

Väinö Mäkelä, from Turku, Finland, is a powerhouse in European disc golf. He is the 2021 Finnish Champion and a 4x Finnish Pro Tour Champion, but his accomplishments don’t stop there– Väinö has played DGPT events in the States for the past five years, with multiple top 10 finishes including a podium placement at the 2022 DDO.

Beyond his exceptional play, Väinö is famously funny, well-spoken, and engaging. He’s a captivating storyteller with an engaged audience of over 50,000 followers on Instagram and over 60,000 subscribers on Youtube. Väinö will show his audience the amazing things that Innova discs can do and Innova’s dedicated fan-base will welcome Väinö to the Team with open arms.
