Current Trends and Development of Cross-country Skiing Technique
Introduction: Cross-country skiing performance is affected by many factors. To reach the best performance, and ensure further performance progress, it is necessary to pay full attention to each determinant. The cross-country skiing technique is one of the most important ones.
Aim of the Study: The study aims to describe the changes in the competitive crosscountry skiing technique in the past ten years.
Material and Methods: The theoretical methods, such as descriptive and comparative methods, were used to evaluate the development of the individual cross-country skiing technique. The available articles from PubMed and ResearchGate databases from the past eight years (2010-2019) were used for evaluation.
Results: The result of the study is a kinematic evaluation of innovative changes in the technical design of classical technology and skating.
Conclusion: Two cross-country skiing techniques were improved during those eight years – double poling and V2 skate technique.
