Switzerland’s Dario Cologna would be the odds-on favorite in men’s 15km cross-country after winning gold in 2010, but Sochi throws a wrench in that because it’s classic instead of freestyle this time around. That doesn’t mean he cannot win, it just seems to worsen his odds.

Other contenders of particular note include the likes of Kazakh Alexey Poltoranin, Norway’s Martin Johnsrud Sundby (pictured) and Finland’s Matti Heikkinen.

The U.S. is a heavy underdog in the event, with Noah Hoffman likely being the most noteworthy name.
