Over 700 participants from more than 15 different nations took part in the INWA Nordic Walking World Championships on 2-9-2022. The organisation by INWA member PZNW (Polskie Zrzeszenie Nordic Walking) did a great job together with their sponsors and volunteers.
During the weekend of September 2nd, in Szklarska Poręba many Nordic Walkers were competing with each other but at the same time, they had fun, made new friends and enjoyed the international atmosphere. That is what Nordic Walking is all about. Nordic Walking offers everything. These magical Nordic Walking poles do not only improve your physical and mental health but they unite and connect people from all over the world regardless of age, gender, or culture and that is maybe one of the greatest things about this wonderful sport.
I know that it has taken a lot of effort for a lot of the participants to prepare themselves for this great event not to mention the fact that many of them have also travelled a long distance to be there. We are very sure that this will have a positive impact also on the future development of Nordic Walking. Who knows, maybe Nordic Walking will someday be qualified as an Olympic Sport, you never know…..
Official records are under registration and will follow soon.
