Skiers & Calisthenics: Best Of

Today’s cross country skiing is not your dad’s cross country skiing for sure. The further we go – the more athletic skiers become. Quite a few could grace any tournament of street workout & calisthenics with their presence.  

The athlete who opens this fitness parade on our pages is, of course, none else than Lucas Chanavat, one of the world leaders in ski sprint

A 23 year old U23 World champ is known to promote handstands as a way of training – and showing off his prowess…

FIS – take a look at this! It might give you an idea for some sort of new “ski pentathlon” or something


A 19 year old Ekaterina Borisova is bringing to skiing what she learned doing rhythmic gymnastics in her childhood


Another 19-year old, Anita Korva, is totally convincing at doing a “Human flag”

BTW, Ms Korva is as impressive in dancing

…This list is in no way exhaustive, so feel free to add your favorite skier who is also a calisthenics hero.
