Nordic walking is a popular sport in Karelia. When coronavirus lockdown ended, our team decided to join a sport programme called «Nordic walking is a new way of life».
We started training with SkadiKarjala school of nordic walking and after two months we challengened ourselves to show our skills in the first competition among other teams of beginners. The competition took place on the 13th of September on Spartak Stadium in the cente of Petrozavodsk. Even stormy weather in the beginning could not stop this festival of healthy movement and positive emotions. All the teams covered the distances of 2 and 4 kilometres without penalties and were awarded with medals.
We thank SkandiKarjala school of nordic walking for the knowledge they gave us and for the time they spent with us. Nordic walking gave us a lot of energy and only positive vibes. Looking forward to new competitions and meetings!
