Ulset is into his second decade at the very top of Nordic skiing.
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.
