From professionals


Meet one of our youngest champions, Anton Petersson, 19 years

Anton is part of the team of competitors who are under 24 years of age. See what he has to say about his chances at this year’s World Logging Championships (WLC).

1. What are your chances to win a medal at WLC?

I will win WLC, if not this year, I know I will win another year. But this year I expect to come home with at least a few medals.

2. How do you prepare?

I practice the 5 disciplines in the same order they are arranged in the competition, to get a “realistic” training. It’s all or nothing. I also get a lot tips and support from our coach Lars Strandell and Finish champion Jukka Perämäki.

3. How much do you practice?

Since February, I have practiced almost every day. Right after work and dinner I go out and practice, approx. 3 hours per day. The last four weeks before the competition I will take it up a notch.
