Russia made their debut at the 1994 Games in Lillehammer.
Of the 10 gold medals they won in Lillehammer eight of them came in Nordic skiing, a sport that provides all but two of their 54 gold medals won to date.
The only gold medals won outside of Nordic skiing were won by alpine skier Alexei Moshkine, who won the men's super G [LW1/3] in 1994 and the giant slalom [LW1,3,5/7] in 1998.
Russia's most successful Games, in terms of gold medals won, was the 2006 Games in Turin. Visually impaired Nordic skier Liubov Vasilyeva won two individual and one relay gold, helping Russia to a total of 33 medals, including 13 gold.
In Vancouver in 2010, 17-year-old Nordic skier Mikhalina Lysova won four individual medals [two silver and two bronze] and gold in the women's 3x2.5km relay.
