Greatest Cross Country Skiers of All Time
The Top Ten
He have NEVER been caught using doping, NEVER have he admited using doping eather. The clowns above are plain out lying and should reference such horrible claims. I urge all of you to do your own search if you don't believe me. These are bad losers trying, pathetic really, and really cowardly.
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
Best of all time
4 time individual Olympic champion, individual World champion, 4 time overall World cup winner, 4 time distance World cup winner, 4 time Tour de ski winner. The most decorated Tour de ski male athlete of all the time and the only cross country skier to win 3 times the same event in the olympic games in row. What else need to say?
Great athlete and authentic, humble person, the first Swiss superstar in cross country.
I love him, he is amazing! And so handsome too.
Awesome competitor in big races
He is a man competing in womens races. - tuckerplace
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!
Was always in shadow of Daehlie due to Daehlie's drug use and asthma problems. Which was a shame.
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.
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
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!?!?
A pioner for Canada! And won even against dopers and cheaters like Bjoergen, Lazutina, Danilova, Neumanova.
One word: CHEAT
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
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.
