The word “double” in cross-country skiing double pursuit competition does not mean “double”, but refers to two skiing techniques, namely traditional technique and free technique. The two techniques are different in terms of movements, equipment, track, etc. The sliding action of traditional techniques usually involves alternating one step, alternating two steps, and advancing at the same time, with the legs similar to a walking posture. During the competition, athletes slide their skis in the pressed snow trough, use their poles to push and swing their legs forward and back, and keep their skis parallel to the direction of sliding. The free technical movements include the ice step and the figure-eight mountaineering step, that is, the feet are in an outward figure, similar to the skating posture. The free technology can basically be understood as skating however you want. Therefore, the free technique is usually faster and more energy-saving than the traditional technique.
