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!

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 Thomas Alsgaard

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

5 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!

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.

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 Veikko Hakulinen
10 Johan Grøttumsbråten
The Contenders
11 Thorleif Haug
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 Mika Myllylä
15 Johannes Høsflot Klæbo
16 Juha Mieto
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.
