Four disciplines, cross-country skiing, ski jumping, biathlon and Nordic combined, have yielded France the largest number of Olympic medals in winter sports in 30 years, more medals than all other Olympic sports together.

France’s Nordic Ski Teams have featured in Olympic Games ever since the Chamonix Games in 1924. Suffice it to mention such major champions as biathlon athletes Raphaël Poirée, Vincent Jay and Florence Baverel-Robert , and also Jason Lamy-Chapuis and Fabrice Guy in combined Nordic.

The French Nordic Ski teams were awarded an impressive number of medals at the recently closed Sochi Olympic Games in 2014 : 2 gold medals, I silver medal and 3 Bronze medals, ie 6 medals out a total 15 won by French athletes over the 22nd Winter Games.

«The French Nordic Ski Team athletes need to rely on gears that work for them throughout the season, at times when they train and at times when they compete as well. Monnet is a valued partner company because its products live up to our expectations and to our ambition. The socks are thin enough for the feet not to feel squeezed and constricted in the boots, however tight the boots, and yet they are warm enough to withstand extreme weather conditions. And Monnet will not cut corners on adequate ergonomic padding »
