Harvard Health Letter misidentifies poles used for Nordic Walking
The new Harvard Health Letter, released under the prestigious Harvard Medical School name, in a piece called “Talking of Walking in Three Easy Pieces,” includes the statement:
“Using hiking poles on flat land has been dubbed Nordic walking because the motion resembles cross-country skiing and, by some accounts, the practice has a Finnish provenance.”
Oh no! Not again. Not another confusion between hiking poles and Nordic Walking poles!
