Cross Country Skiing

By Maarit Tusa

Hello!

My name is Maarit Malinen. This is to inform you all that the cross country skiing has a new technical director. Mr. Knut Bjarne Kjøde from Norway handed over the responsibility to me as your new technical director. I am a Finnish and a former competitive skier. Maybe you may remember me, my maiden name was Korhonen.

I will try to do my best to get the sport of cross country skiing to flourish again.  It used to have a lot of skiers. Hopefully, skiing is not a dying species, and under my tenure, it will rise again.

The 2011 Winter Deaflympics is no longer far away. It will be in the High Tatras in Slovakia. Start exercising and stay drug-free!

Best regards,

Maarit MALINEN
ICSD Technical Director - Cross Country Skiing
