This is how Nordic walking appeared on the sports scene. A new sport that took its athletes, always accompanied by the characteristic Nordic walking sticks, for the most beautiful trails of the Finnish mountains. But the Nordic Walking was institutionalized a decade later, and thus began to spread to other European countries such as Austria and Germany, reaching the United States and expanding to all corners of the world.
