Two-time Olympic gold medalist Petter Northug of Norway hopes to put on a show once again in the men’s cross-country skiathlon (15km classic + 15km free), which goes off at 5 a.m. ET. You can catch it at the top of the hour on NBCOlympics.com.
Northug won’t be the only big name in the field, though. Switzerland’s Dario Cologna, the 2010 Olympic champion in the 15km freestyle, will look to prove that he’s back on form after sustaining a right ankle injury last fall.
Noah Hoffman, Kris Freeman, Brian Gregg and Erik Bjornsen make up the American foursome in today’s event.
