In this event, skiers begin the course in 30-second intervals apart from one another and the skier with the fastest time through the course is the winner. In past Olympics, this event has been contested in classical format, but has switched to freestyle format this Olympics to give the skier more options for traveling the course.

With so few skiers listed in the odds, the Field has been set as the clear favorite for this event.

The Field has been given odds of 5/8 to win the gold according to online sports book Brobury Sports. Other short odds to win are Charlotte Kalla (3/1), Marit Bjoergen (4/1), and Irina Khazova (4/1).

Of the listed skiers, Kalla is favored. Kalla, who represents Sweden, has not won a world championship in this event, but has won gold in the Scandinavia Cup in this event in 2006. She has also won bronze in past world cup’s for this event.

Bjoergen, who represents Norway, won the silver medal in the 2006 Olympics for the 10 km classical race. She also won bronze in the 2005 world championships for the freestyle event.
