Biography

Arto Koivisto made his international début at the 1974 World Championships, but with little success, placing only 20th in the 15 km. But the winter of 1976 was kind to Koivisto, as he won a gold in the relay, bronze in the 15 km, was eighth in the 30 km and tenth in the 50 km at the Winter Olympics, won the 15 km at the Holmenkollen Ski Festival, and also won a silver at the 1975-76 World Cup, behind teammate Juha Mieto. Koivisto also competed at the 1978 and 1982 World Championships, finishing back in the field. Domestically Koivisto won two Finnish titles, in 1974 in the 50 km and in 1982 in the 15 km.
