Dog sledder Matt Hodgson has picked up a silver medal in the ‘2 dog 2′ category on snow at the World Sleddog Association/IFSS World Championships in Sweden, the highest placing ever for a British adult on snow at a WSA World Championships.
The event started and finished in Östersund’s famous ski arena earlier this month, with competitors from many countries including Belgium, Sweden and Italy.
Matt is supported by natural canine feed supplier CSJ. A company spokesperson said: “We are so proud of Matt’s and his dogs’ achievement. The energy expended by these fabulous Nordic breeds in these competitions is huge and the humans also need to be extremely fit and focussed – well done Matt!”
