One of the most famous Cross Country Skiers of the present day is Dario Cologna. He is a 26 year old from Switzerland who has won the World Cup three times, one Olympic Gold medal and three Tour de Ski trophies.
Dario uses poles from and is a supporter of ONE WAY, as well as an active ambassador of Nordic Sports in general. He is still at his competitive best, so it will be interesting to see how he fares in this event. We wish him luck!
The Australians who will be competing at this year’s Championships include:
- Phillip Bellingham
- Callum Watson
- Mark van der Ploeg
- Esther Bottomley
We are very proud to have these athletes flying the flag for us. Go Aussies!!
