sLowi Returns in New Look SkitLite
Today marks the beggining of a new CS:GO team with the return of Olli "sLowi" Pitkänen along with talented players Topi "tofi" Heinonen, Mika ‘MISKA’ Raitila, Daniel ‘pheini’ Nyholm and Juho ‘Tunkkis’ Hänninen.
This new look SkitLite will be competing in the €6,000 Connection CS:GO Lan event this weekend. Olli "sLowi" Pitkänen featured in SkitLite's team back in 2015 along with Topi "tofi" Heinonen standing in for a SkitLite player two years ago. The familiar faces mixed with new talent will help to create a balance of experience and fearlessness that is needed to progress in high level CS.
The new SkitLite captain, Olli "sLowi" Pitkänen made a statement regarding the signing;
“It’s time to return home! The whole team is honored to represent an organisation like SkitLite even though we haven't been playing together for that long. I want to thank Theo and the whole crew for the opportunity they have given us. I am looking forward to showing everyone what we are capable of.”
SkitLite CEO Theo Daffurn also made a statement;
“This team has been competing in many qualifiers over the last month and they caught my eye when they qualified for the Connection LAN. Olli (sLowi) has been someone that was already on our headhunting list and it felt like the right time to bring in a team with him as the in-game leader and captain. The talent across this lineup is evident and there is a lot of opportunity for the team to progress both as a team and individually. I can’t wait to work with these guys to build the foundations so that they are able to grow into an organised and stable team with work ethic and teamwork at it’s core.”
It is with great pride that SkitLite will once again have a CS:GO team that are striving to reach the top 3 in Finland. The team while relatively new will be hoping to have a strong start at their first LAN while also being realistic with themselves so they can reach their full potential.
