On Saturday the Olympic program in cross country skiing gets underway with the ladies’ 7,7/7,5 skiathlon
Today we make an effort to show you some of those who will be running in that race.
Let’s be fair & honest: there’s a rather small chance that any of them will make it to the podium or even the flower ceremony after the finish in the skiathlon race.
Television cameras are unlikely to stay on them for more than a few second during the broadcast.
Which is rather pity & unfair – all of them are world-class skiers. Strong, dedicated and technically accomplished.
We try to fill that gap by showing you how they look on or close to the ski tracks. Enjoy!
All pictures were taken on the sidelines of international competitions earlier this season.
