The History of Cross-Country Skiing in FISU

The programme of Cross-Country Skiing at the first Winter Universiade included the individual competitions of men’s 12 km C and women’s 8 km C, as well as men’s 4×8 km relay and women’s 3×4 km relay. Generally, the men’s and women’s competitions were dominated by the Russians (USSR) who finished always among the top six. Athletes who have participated in, and and won medals at, the FISU Games include Olympic and world stars such as Justyna KOWALCZYK (POL).
