She dished out a classy performance at the 2009 Finnish Championships, where she won double titles in the 400m dash (53.87s) and the 800m run (2:05.11), ala the great Alberto Juantorena. Storbacka also added a 4x100m relay bronze medal to her formidable haul.

The in-form Finn reached the 800m semi-finals of the 2009 European Indoor Championships in Torino, running 2:05.17 in qualifying. Storbacka failed to advance, however, as she placed sixth in her semi-final.
