We welcome women to step up to the international logging scene, with a brand new women’s class at WLC2018!
With this new class, all countries will have the opportunity to participate with one more competitor at this years championship!
The women’s class will be an integrated part of the competition and program, and the participants will get the same accommodation etc. as the other competitors (they will be treated the same as i.e. the junior class). The participants in the women’s class will be ranked separately, and are not eligible for an official world champion title.
Women are of course able to compete as a part of their national team in the regular elite and junior class, like they have been able to at previous championships. In that case the ranking is not separate, and they can compete for the world champion title.
With a brand new women’s class at the World Logging Championship 2018, we aim to empower more women to take their place and be a part of the international logging community!
