Cross-country skiing has been an integral part of the Winter Olympics, having featured in every edition of the tournament since the inaugural Winter Games in 1924.

Cross-country skiing is a form of skiing where skiers rely on their own locomotion to move across snow-covered terrain rather than using ski lifts or other forms of assistance.

The sport tests the endurance of athletes as they compete over long distances on skis, using different techniques to move forward. With the Nordic nations leading the way, Johannes Klaebo of Norway and Russia's Alexander Bolshunov are the two biggest names in the men's competition.

Meanwhile, Natalya Neprayeva (Russia), Therese Johaug (Norway) and Ebba Andersson (Sweden) are among the leading women to look out for in Beijing.
