Greatest Cross Country Skiers of All Timetorsja29
The Top Ten
He got caught using drugs most of his career and admits to doing it. Should not be #1!
Won trhough drugs. Even admitted it after his career.
Olympics: 8 gold medals, 4 sliver medals
World Championship: 9 gold medals, 5 silver medals, 3 bronze medals - torsja29
Great athlete and authentic, humble person, the first Swiss superstar in cross country.
Class act all the way and great champion. 5 Olympic Golds! - fartingbum
Sweetheart! Great competitor too.
I love him, he is amazing! And so handsome too.V 2 Comments
Was always in shadow of Daehlie due to Daehlie's drug use and asthma problems. Which was a shame.
Amazing champion. So much talent and great work ethic.
Not only a great skiier but a really great lady. Love and miss her so much!
Best female skiier ever. didn't need drugs like Marit Man-organ or many of her teammates. - quackerpacker
Shameful doper! Glad she got busted at Salt Lake City to end her phony career.
Used drugs at the end of her career, but at least she didn't do it her whole career like Marit Man-organ. - quackerpacker
Another bigtime doper like Blormgen, Dallie, Myllala, and Yegorova.
She is good and all but does she win nearly as much without being allowed to take her prohibited substances "asthma medication" *snickers* - morrislawes
Hate her, way overrated.
I don't like drug cheats!
Her asthma medication sure helped her dominate for years. Too bad all other skiiers aren't allowed to have the same medication for their asthma.V 3 Comments
His performances at the 93 and 95 worlds, and 94 olympics were amazing. The best skiier in the world those 3 years.
Imagine how many more golds and medals she would have without doper Marit.
Should be way higher. Amazing athlete.
The future of the sport!
Should be way higher. Lower than her far inferior teammate Anna Haag!?!?V 1 Comment
Shame corrupt IOC kept him out of the Games when he has never once had a doping trangression of any kind. he should sue. Has had a great career and a class act. And nobody can beat him in a true final sprint, not even Northug. - feisty37
A pioner for Canada! And won even against dopers and cheaters like Bjoergen, Lazutina, Danilova, Neumanova.
Better than Marit. Her retirement is what allowed Marti to shine (along with drugs). By contrast the great Bente never believed in drug supplements to help her skiing, and won purely clean and strong women against big dopers from Russia and her own team and Finland. Such a great athlete.
