Greatest Cross Country Skiers of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Bjørn Dæhlie

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

2 Petter Northug

Best of all time

3 Dario Cologna

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.

Class act all the way and great champion. 5 Olympic Golds!

I love him, he is amazing! And so handsome too.

4 Marit Bjørgen

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.

He is a man competing in womens races.

Hate her, way overrated.

I don't like drug cheats!

5 Thomas Alsgaard

Was always in shadow of Daehlie due to Daehlie's drug use and asthma problems. Which was a shame.

6 Larisa Lazutina

Used drugs at the end of her career, but at least she didn't do it her whole career like Marit Man-organ.

Shameful doper! Glad she got busted at Salt Lake City to end her phony career.

Another bigtime doper like Blormgen, Dallie, Myllala, and Yegorova.

7 Yelena Välbe

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.

8 Gunde Svan
9 Johan Grøttumsbråten
10 Thorleif Haug
The Contenders
11 Veikko Hakulinen
12 Vladimir Smirnov

His performances at the 93 and 95 worlds, and 94 olympics were amazing. The best skiier in the world those 3 years.

13 Stefania Belmondo
14 Johannes Høsflot Klæbo
15 Mika Myllylä
16 Johan Olsson
17 Charlotte Kalla

Amazing skiler. Shame she has to race against doped up Bjoergen and other cheaters. Yet she holds her own and beats them all often clean! And 10 Olympic medals of gold or silver already and still young.

Imagine how many more golds and medals she would have without doper Marit.

Should be way higher. Lower than her far inferior teammate Anna Haag!?!?

Should be way higher. Amazing athlete.

18 Juha Mieto
19 Therese Johaug
20 Thomas Wassberg
21 Harald Grønningen
22 Lyubov Yegorova
23 Beckie Scott

A pioner for Canada! And won even against dopers and cheaters like Bjoergen, Lazutina, Danilova, Neumanova.

24 Bente Skari

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.

25 Olga Danilova
