Who Will Become A New Beauty-Symbol For Fan-Girls?

Many people love cross-country skiing due to the intensity of the struggle, the clever tricks employed by the skiers, and the brutal exertion that goes on before your very eyes. Some fans, however, watch ski races to see the muscular, handsome athletes that are so iconic of the sport. Petter Northug, Dario Cologna, Teodor Peterson – all of them are well-known sex-symbols, but unfortunately, someday they’ll finish their careers. To make you feel a little better about that, we’ve compiled a list of the future hopefuls in the role, which we’re glad to present to you here:

21 y.o. Even Northug. Will he gain the love of supporters quite like the “original” Northug? We’ve yet to see. Even’s looks are almost like Petter’s. Results? Well, so far Even’s best place in World Cup is 8th. He hasn’t got any medals from Juniors and U23 World Championships, but he is a Northug, and fan-girls all around the world already noticed him a long time ago.

22 y.o. Frenchman Lucas Chanavat is known for his prowess in doing handstands in the most exotic places in the world – and posting it on his Instagram. Chanavat also happens to be a sprint world champion in the U23 age bracket and came 8th in the Sprint World Cup. Maybe he can steal from the Scandinavians both primacy in sprints, and the support of the fans?

Enjoying the black sand beach ! #vacation
