PyeongChang Olympic Cross-Country Skiing

Graphic News

February 9-25, 2018 -- Cross-Country Skiing is one of 24 sporting competitions of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang 2018, South Korea.

The word for skiing comes from the Old Norse “skid” or split length of wood, on which ancient Scandinavians would travel across the snowy terrain. Cross-country skiing is the direct descendant of that activity, and has been an Olympic sport since 1924, comprising 12 individual and team events using either the classic or freestyle skating technique over various distances.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
