Paralympic Nordic skiing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Paralympic Nordic skiing is a Winter Paralympic Games sport consisting of two disciplines: It is governed by the International Paralympic Committee Paralympic Nordic skiing includes standing events, sitting events (for wheelchair users), and events for visually impaired athletes.
edit External links
This winter sports -related article is a stub . You can help Wikipedia by expanding it v d e The word "Paralympic" derives from the Greek preposition "para" ("beside" or "alongside") and the word "Olympics" (the Paralympics being the parallel Games to the Olympics). About the Sport Biathlon Biathlon was introduced in Innsbruck in 1988 (for athletes with a physical disability). In 1992, athletes with a visual impairment were also able to compete in Biathlon. The competition is open to athletes with a physical disability and blindness/visual impairment. It consists of a 7.5km route divided into three 2.5km stages. Between the two stages athletes must hit two targets located at a distance of 10 metres. Each miss is penalized by an increase in the overall route time. The most important success factor lies in the capability of alternating the skills of physical endurance and shooting accuracy during the competition. Athletes with blindness/visual impairment are assisted by acoustic signals, which depending on signal intensity, indicate when the athlete is on target. The sport is governed by the IPC with co-ordination by the IPC Nordic Skiing Technical Committee following the modified rules of the International Biathlon Union (IBU).

Cross Country Skiing in Northwest Wisconsin
Click to view electronic Guide Northwest Wisconsin is a region rich in Nordic skiing tradition and history and blessed with some of the best cross country ski trails in the country. Not only are there literally hundreds of kilometers of groomed trails, but they represent a wide range of family-oriented to athletically challenging experiences in a setting of incredible natural beauty. With the region's strong Scandinavian heritage, it was only natural that Nordic skiing took root in northwest Wisconsin. Farmers, loggers and settlers of Norwegian, Finnish and Swedish extraction used cross country skis for work and recreation dating back to the early part of the twentieth century. Much of the area's "modern" Nordic skiing heritage can be attributed to the late Tony Wise and the development of Telemark Resort in Cable. Wise was one of those larger than life characters whose accomplishments helped elevate cross country skiing to a much higher level of awareness in the Midwest and perhaps the country. He was the former owner of Telemark Resort which became one of the first downhill ski areas in the Midwest in 1947. As such, it quickly became a hot spot for winter sports in the area. Wise recognized the potential for cross country skiing at Telemark; a system of trails was laid out and Telemark began to make its mark in the world of cross country skiing. To further promote Telemark Resort and its cross country ski trails, Wise also went on to create the American Birkebeiner cross country ski marathon. Starting with only 54 skiers in 1973, it has grown to enormous proportions and now attracts nearly 7,000 skiers. The American Birkebeiner Ski Trail, originally created specifically for this event, has become the most significant cross country ski trail in the United States.

Norway's Daehlie Was Bjorn to Ski The undisputed king of cross-country skiing, Norway's Bjorn Daehlie ( pictured ), won the 50-kilometer event Sunday for his eighth career Olympic gold medal, the most by any athlete in the Winter Games. Daehlie collapsed on the finish line after more than two hours of skiing. Norway Wins Relay for Daehlie's Seventh Daehlie Easily Wins 10K Classic Countryman Denies Daehlie in 15K Thomas Kienzie/AP Russians Sweep Women's Events Russia ended Italy's bid for a third consecutive gold in the 30-kilometer cross-country when Yulia Tchepalova ( pictured ) beat 1992 gold medalist Stefania Belmondo of Italy by 10.2 seconds. The win gave Russia a sweep of the the five women's cross-country races, and with the young and brash Tchepalova around to lead a new generation of stars, it seems assured of continued dominance in women's cross-country. Norway Ends Japan's Run in Nordic Combined Even with Emperor Akihito cheering them on, the Japanese could not overcome a disappointing performance on the ski-jump hill and saw their reign as Nordic team champion end after two consecutive Winter Games.
