Organisers of the 2020 International Ski Federation (FIS) Nordic Junior and Under-23 Cross-Country World Ski Championships have unveiled the logo and visual identity of the event in Oberwiesenthal.
In less than a year's time, the future stars of cross-country skiing, ski jumping and Nordic combined will descend on the German town, known as a long-time host of the Nordic Combined Summer Grand Prix.
Following the conclusion of the 2019 FIS Nordic Junior and Under-23 Cross-Country World Ski Championships in Lahti last month, a video message from the Finnish organisers transmitted their good wishes to their successors.
A young athlete was also dispatched to Oberwiesenthal to hand over a banner.
Receiving the video message and banner were district administrator Frank Vogel, Oberwiesenthal's Mayor Mirko Ernst, and Christian Freitag, chief executive of the town's ski club WSC Erzgebirge Oberwiesenthal e.V.
