Calle Halfvarsson is one of the Swedish cross-country skiers selected for the World Cup in Canmore and Minneapolis.

Canmore, Canada, is the place for the next stage of this year’s cross-country skiing World Cup. The Canmore World Cup starts on Friday, February 9, with a 10km interval start race in freestyle technique, followed by a sprint race in freestyle technique on Saturday, February 10, then a 20km mass start race in classic technique on Sunday, February 11, and a sprint race in classic technique on Tuesday, February 13.

After Canmore, it’s time for the Minneapolis World Cup, starting on Saturday, February 17, with a sprint race in freestyle technique and ending with a 10km interval start race in freestyle technique on Sunday, February 18, 2024

In a press release, the Swedish Ski Association has named their cross-country ski team for the upcoming World Cups in Canmore and Minneapolis. Sweden will start with 16 athletes. On the women’s side, Sweden will start with 8 skiers. Already on the men’s side, 8 athletes will start for the Scandinavian country. 

“We are taking eight women and eight men to travel to Canada and the USA – a squad that is balanced to have skiers for both sprint and distance. Extra nice that we have both Sprint World Cup leader Linn Svahn and U23 World Cup leader Edvin Anger,” says national team manager Anders Byström.

The national team manager is happy that the World Cup is now back on Canadian and American soil.

“For the sport’s attention and interest in North America, upcoming competitions are important to us. It will be exciting to experience the crowd pressure that is expected in Minneapolis above all – which is the hometown of World Cup leader Jessica Diggins. There are rumors of success in ticket sales and many thousands of spectators,” Byström says.

The Swedish squad is selected for both Canmore and Minneapolis.

“Calle Halvarsson is back again after a week or so at home, and we hope to get an energetic Calle back where he can find his way back to the form he had before Christmas. William Poromaa also plans to stand on the starting line after the cold that caused him to travel home from the competitions in Goms,” concludes Anders Byström.
