The medal ceremony of WLC 2010

It was time to go back to the Hotel I in Zagreb for the medal awards. The results was still uncertain and we were very exited to get to see who got to be the world champion. All participants were there, as well as everyone from the Husqvarna crew. The medals for the technical disciplines was handed out at the ceremony the day before (read about it here). Now we were about to see the medal winners of Tree felling, Limbing, Relay race, All events nation and All events individual.

In the Tree felling, one of our most famous loggers reached the very top: Johann "Hans" Raffl from Italy was rewarded with the gold medal. This was a really close fight, as many as four participants ended up with a score of 659 in this discipline and therefore the time had to set them apart. Hans beat the silver medalist Jean Michel Petitqueux with one(!) second and was the winner of the dicipline.

Here is an interview with Hans after he just got rewarded.

The young participant Florian Huster have been presented many times on the Husqvarna Loggers Blog by now and still we never got the chance to talk to him about his performance. But efter he received the gold medal for the U24 class in the Limbing discipline, we finally got a hold on him. It was a very happy Florain we met. Anders Kragner helps us with the translation.
