Alexander Bolshunov of ROC (Russia) and Denis Spitsov of ROC (Russia) celebrate gold and silver, respectively, in the men's 30km skiathlon at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Zhangjiakou. Both are selected for the 50km on Saturday, the final cross-country event of the 2022 Olympics.

These are the four men and four women who will race under the flag of the Russian Olympic Committee in the final events of the 2022 Beijing Olympics. 

The men’s team
The Russians are considered strong medal contenders in both the men’s 50-kilometer skate race on Saturday and the women’s 30-kilometer skate race on Sunday. 

For the men’s 50-kilometer skate race on Saturday, the following four men will be at the start line: Denis Spitsov, Artem Maltsev, Alexander Bolshunov and Ivan Yakimushkin. 

Bolshunov has medaled in every event he has raced at the Beijing Olympics, starting with the gold medal at the 30-kilometer skiathlon on the first day of the men’s races. 

Spitsov has raced two events at the Beijing Olympics and bagged a medal in each: He won the silver medal in the 30-kilometer skiathlon and helped Russia to gold in the relay.

Maltsev and Yakimushkin have yet to make the podium at the Olympics. 

The men’s 50-kilometer skate race is a mass start event, and takes place at 7 am on Saturday, February 29. Check out the start lists and race details.

The women’s team
For the women’s 30-kilometer skate race, the Russian Olympic Committee has named Natalia Nepryaeva, Tatiana Sorina, Anastasia Rygalina and Mariya Istomina to the team. 

Nepryaeva has already collected three medals at the Beijing Olympics: She earned the silver medal in the 15-kilomter skiathlon and the bronze medal in the team sprint along with Yulia Stupak, as well as helping the Russians to gold in the relay. 

Sorina was also a part of the golden relay team. Rygalina was eighth in the 15-kilometer skiathlon. Istomina is entering her first-ever event at the Olympics. 

The women’s 30-kilometer skate race is a mass start event, and takes place at 7:30 am on Sunday, February 20. Check out the start lists and race details
