2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, has already hogged the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The ban on Russian athletes followed by the low ticket sales has entirely overshadowed every fan’s attention on the actual games. Beyond all that, the only thing that can get things straight again is an exciting series of sporting events at the games, and Cross-Country Skiing is undoubtedly going to be the biggest hope of bringing in some interest to the games.
Cross-Country Skiing has been a part of Winter Olympics ever since its inception in 1924. It has always been one of those disciplines which have the maximum number of medal events. This year too it will have one of the highest numbers of medal events, 12. In the last edition of Winter Games, Norway ran away as the clear winners last time with a medals tally of 5 gold, two silver, and four bronze. They have been the overall leaders on the all-time list as well and will be interesting to see if they get any strong challenge this time around. For that, you’ll need to know all the details of cross country skiing in this edition, and we’ve just got it covered for you.
