Ulset is into his second decade at the very top of Nordic skiing.
Now in his thirties, at Sochi 2014, Ulset collected his ninth, 10 and 11th Paralympic medal at his fourth winter Paralympic Games.
At his first Games in Salt Lake City in 2002, he won two gold medals in cross-country. Fast-forward to the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons, the incredibly adaptable Ulset finished as No.2 in the biathlon World Cup.
Earning four podium finishes across in IPC Biathlon World Cups in 2014-15, Ulset appeared to be focusing his attention on shooting and skiing going forward. He finished sixth in 2015-16.
Ulset will face challenges from many sides at the 2017 World Para Nordic Skiing Championships including Ukrainian world champion Ihor Reptyukh.
But with biathlon legend and fellow countryman Ole Einar Bjorndalen, the most decorated winter Olympian in history, as his idol Ulset has already entered the ranks as one of Norway’s most successful para-Nordic skiers.

He plans to retire from Para Nordic skiing after competing at the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing and continue in his role as a Para sports consultant with the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports. "Sadly I will not be participating in Milan-Cortina [the 2026 Paralympic Winter Games]. It is a beautiful place, but the Games in Beijing [in 2022] are where my career ends. Sport has given me so much. Now I can try to give back. [His wife Ingrid] has sacrificed a lot for me to be able to do this so it's time to go home and give back." (france24.com, 09 Mar 2022; paralympic.org, 10 Sep 2021)
In March 2020 he began working for the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports as a Para sports consultant in More og Romsdal county. "I hope and believe that I can contribute a lot in this area, as I would like to give back to the sport that has given me so much."
