Last weekend the 20 Worldloppet nations met in Lahti for the Annual General Meeting and elected Juha Viljamaa as new president.
Once a year all representatives of Worldloppet are gathering to evaluate the past season and to discuss the future of our Worldloppet. This year the OC of Finlandia Hiihto around the President Juha Viljamaa invited the 20 Worldloppet nations to Lahti, the venue of Finlandia Hiihto and also of the Nordic World Championships 2017 for the Worldloppet Annual General Meeting 2016. From Thursday (16th of June) to Saturday evening the delegates worked hard on the future of Worldloppet and the world of marathonskiing. New Worldloppet President without any doubts, the biggest news from this year's Worldloppet Congress is the new President. After 12 years of leading the Worldloppet family, Angelo Corradini from the Marcialonga handed his duties over to Finland. Juha Viljamaa from this day on is not only the OC President of Finlandia Hiihto but also President of Worldloppet.
