Lung health in Nordic Sports study!

Do you ever wonder if a bad cough or raspy voice after a ski race or biathlon race affects your lung health?

Do you ever wonder how cold is too cold to train or race or other health factors like itchy skin or food allergies affect your lung health?

Then your participation in this study will help researchers understand the full extent, type and causes of respiratory health in cross country and biathlon sports.


If you are actively training and have competition goals in cross country skiing or biathlon then you are eligible for this study.

What we will ask you to do:

  • Complete an online questionnaire. This will take you no more than 30 minutes.

Benefits to you:

This study has no immediate benefits to you but allows researchers to build a comprehensive profile of lung health and causes of lung health issues in Nordic sports (cross-country and biathlon).
