Team Suomi member before start

by Minoru Matsuyama

Our family WL challenge was started in 2009 from J50, my son finished 25km short race, he was 9 years old. He got first WL stamp on his passport there. We established Team SUOMI from 2009. Team SUOMI is composed of four skiers, Matsuyama family (Minoru, Tomoko & Suomi) with Mr. Hannes Larsson.

After that we checked each WL ski races for my son’s entry, each race has not same regulation, age limit for the short race was different for each races. One is no age limit and another is from 18 years old, 16 years old, 14 years old and 13 years old. We need to buy new ski sets every year according to his growing up year by year.
