Soviet athletes have not just scored a victory at the command of the Olympic piste. However, it laid the foundation of our racers and the results of cross-country men, tended to be more modest.

Still, Ivan Garanin went out on 3rd place and 'brought' his team bronze medal. Gold awards went to Finnish skiers.
