Great final day of the WLC.

The 28th World Logging Championships (WLC) was completed in lovely sunshine on Sunday. Around 2 500 people visited the competition area. This means that the WLC 2008 have had a total audience of 4700 people during the three days of competition.

The main event of the day was the Limbing. Husqvarna’s Jukka Perämäki from Finland and the Russian Alexander Sorutsev showed excellent skills. Perämäki’s and Sorutsev’s high points in the discipline resulted in the silver and bronze medals for their total achievements in the WLC.

Finally, Husqvarna would like to say thank you to all our contestants for many good performances. We're already looking forward to the next World Logging Championships, which will be held in Croatia 2010. We hope to see you all there!
