After the winter season, Petter Myhlback announced that his time as waxing manager for the Swedish cross-country skiing team was over. 

The new waxing manager was presented during a press conference in Torsby, Sweden. The person taking over the role is 39-year-old Anders Svanebo, who had an active career as a cross-country skier.

“It has been a long process. We are really looking forward to him taking over the job. He is the one who absolutely meets the criteria we have set,” says National Team manager Anders Byström at a press conference on Thursday.

Svanebo, who was part of the Swedish National Team, is looking forward to his new job.

“When I got the opportunity, I didn’t hesitate to accept,” says Svanebo at the National Team’s press conference in Torsby and adds:

“The national skiing team is an extremely inspiring environment to be in. I know how developing it is.”

Anders Svanebo retired from the professional rankings in 2018 after winning both Swedish Championships gold and World Championships gold on roller skis.

Fluor-free competitions from the 2023/2024 season

Earlier in March, the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) announced that the fluor wax ban will be fully implemented at the start of the upcoming 2023/2024 winter season. The decision has been made due to potential health risks and environmental concerns connected to the use of fluorine waxes.

“We are pleased that we can now fully implement the fluor wax ban across our major competitions,” said FIS Vice President Roman Kumpost, who worked closely with the project. “This is a key step in guaranteeing the integrity of competitions and minimizing the impact of the adverse health and environmental effects of the product.”

“FIS will continue to work closely with all stakeholders throughout the summer to ensure everyone is fully prepared when the ban takes full effect at the start of the 2023-24 winter season.”
