Shengnan Chen is the 2012 Vasa Snow Angel

After several weeks of serious competition the new Vasa Snow Angel is known: Shengnan Chen from Baicheng got the vote from the jury in a dramatic finale of the 2012 competition. Second place went to Jinqiao Gu from Jilin City, and Jing Fu from Harbin completed a very strong podium.

All three podium finishers were very closely matched in all aspects of the Snow Angel paegant. Shengnan in the end prevailed, demonstrating great English skill, professionalism, maturity and confidence throughout the contest in front of an unfamiliar audience. The 21-year-old ethnic Mongolian Snow Angel will represent Changchun, Vasaloppet China and Nordic Ways Vasa, both in China and abroad next year. In March she will also travel to Sweden for the original Vasaloppet event in Mora. Shengnan is in her final year of studies at Changchun University. Nordic Ways congratulates her with her Vasa Snow Angel title and wishes her all the best in the upcoming year!
