Newly elected WMRA President Jonathan Wyatt shares ideas for the future

IMG 4878During the WMRA Congress meeting in Premana, Italy, on July 29, 2017, Jonathan Wyatt was elected as the fourth president of the WMRA. Wyatt, who not only had a successful mountain running career, winning the World Mountain Running Championships six times between 1998 and 2008, as well as multiple mountain races including Jungfrau Marathon, also represented New Zealand in the Olympic Games finishing 21st at the Marathon in 2004.
