Extensive discussions in the last days were held with FIS to avoid that new competition rule regarding pole length has to be implemented already at Masters World Cup 2017 in Klosters. Earlier given information by WMA that new rule will become valid only with MWC 2018 in Minneapolis became not accepted by FIS.

This is an information to all athletes that new competition rule 348.8.1 has to be obeyed in Klosters.

Full wording of the rule is as follows:

In classical technique competitions the maximum pole length must not exceed 83 % of the competitor`s body height. In free technique competitions, the maximum pole length must not exceed 100 % of the competitor´s height. The body height is measured with ski boots on from a flat surface, to the top of the uncovered head. The pole length is measured from the bottom of the pole to the highest attachment of the strap. All measurements will be rounded to the nearest centimeter as follows: less than 0.5 cm will be rounded down and 0.5 cm and above will be rounded up.

Please see also attached sketch.

More than 1000 cross-country skiers have registered now for MWC 2017 in Klosters/Switzerland.   

The tracks are fully prepared and in excellent conditions for training. Due to the very low temperatures in the last weeks artifical snow could be produced in order to secure competitions in March.

Registration deadline for participants is January 30.

First time in Masters history registration at forthcoming Masters World Cup in Klosters/Switzerland from February 2-11, 2017 can be also made online.

Registration deadline is January 30, 2017.



National Directors and Presidency of WMA met for their Annual Meeting end of September in Minneapolis/MN.

Main focus of the delegates was the inspection of the site of Masters World Cup 2018 from January 19-26. The event will be held in the Theodore Wirth Park, close to downton Minneapolis. Due to the existing terrain and some planned alterations, the athletes can expect very attractive tracks. Of advantage for the skiers is also that all can be accommodated in only a few hotels in downtown Minneapolis. The organizing committee was able to negotiate very reasonable prices for the Masters.  

Jouko Kärki, the successor of Leena Jääskeläinen, was introduced and fully ratified by vote. Leena Jääskeläinen started to work within WMA in 1991 and was since then always in charge as National Directors. She was able to accompany 4 Masters World Cups in Finnland. 

The organizers of the next Masters World Cup in Klosters/Switzerland were connected via video conference. They informed that all technical and administrative work is within their time frame, also the newbuilding of a sporthall. Homepage is ready for registration.
