Here is the preview, start list, and time for tomorrow's men's skiathlon race at the World Championships in Planica.

On Friday, the men’s skiathlon will take place in Planica. Norway has a strong record in the men’s skiathlon event, having won 12 World Championships medals, including three wins.

However, they have only won one world title in the last five World Championships, which Sjur Røthe secured in 2019. Røthe can make history by winning a second world title in the event, putting him on par with Per Elofsson and Petter Northug. He could also equal Martin Johnsrud Sundby’s record of three medals in the event.

Simen Hegstad Krüger, who won gold in the skiathlon at the 2018 Winter Olympics, took silver at the 2021 World Championships in the same event. Only two men in history, Dario Cologna and Alexander Bolshunov have won both the skiathlon at the World Championships and Winter Olympics.

Johannes Høsflot Klæbo has started in both the men’s skiathlon and the men’s 50km (freestyle/classic style) events but has never finished on the podium at either the World Championships or Winter Olympics.

No country has ever won gold, silver, and bronze in the men’s skiathlon at a single World Championships. Norway finished in 2nd-3rd-4th-5th-6th place in 2021, behind winner Alexander Bolshunov.

Other contenders for the event include Iivo Niskanen, who won bronze in the men’s skiathlon at the 2022 Winter Olympics and could become the first man to win a World Championships medal in the event for Finland.

Sweden won the first two world titles in the men’s skiathlon when it was a 2x10km event (2001, 2003) and has claimed six medals in total, but its last podium finish in the event was a silver medal for Anders Södergren in 2009.

Italy has won three medals in the men’s skiathlon, but not since Giorgio Di Centa finished third in 2009. Canada took bronze in the men’s skiathlon in 2015 through Alex Harvey.

Planica, Slovenia, is the place for this winter season’s World Championships, with ten competitions in 12 days and the last race being the men’s cross-country skiing 50km mass start race on March 5, 2023.
