In order to make an educated guess, we need to keep a close eye on how the individual countries fare during the early stages of the Winter Olympics.

It also makes it extremely hard to predict the outcome since there are a lot of factors that affect the possible outcome. But no matter what, we're in for some amazing cross country skiing from some of the worlds top athletes.
