Great List of Ski Stars for Summer Ski

E-mail Print PDF

After a hiatus of a few years, Nordic Ways is proud to announce the return of the Summer Ski Festival in Yakeshi, close to Hailar in Inner Mongolia. The event features a long list of world class skiers from several countries including some of China’s own elite. Date of the summer ski clash: 23 June.

Among the skiers who will be lining up in Yakeshi are two Olympic gold medal winners and five Olympic medal winnes in total. Nikita Kriukov from Russia and Anna Haag from Sweden scored their olympic titles at the 2014 Games in Sochi. Those were by no means one-offs, as Kriukov took another silver medal alongside 5 world championship medals (3 gold) throughout his career. The same applies for Haag, who also own 3 olympic silver medals and 4 world championship medals. They will be very much in the spotlight at our ski sprint, but the competition is serious. Emil Jonsson has an olympic silver and bronze, plus 13 world cup victories on his record. His Swedish compatriot Teodor Peterson took silver twice at the olympics, just like Alexander Panshinskii from Russia. Norway’s Pal Toen Aune on the other hand is an up-and-comer, a young skier with several top 10 places in world cup races this very season. Arguably the dark horse in Yakeshi.

Anna Haag will compete against, amongst many others, Jackline Lockler, the champion of China Tour de Ski last winter. Several strong Norwegian women will be trying to come out on top in the eternal Scandinavian dual themselves, and let’s not forget the Chinese skiers who always do very well at our ski events in China!
