As cross-country skiing is one of Estonia's most popular winter sports, it is no surprise that all the nation's winter medals have been won by cross-country skiers.
Estonia's six winter Olympic medals have all come since the country regained independence from the former Soviet Union in 1991.
At the 2002 Salt Lake City Games Andrus Veerpalu won Estonia's first gold medal, triumphing in the 15km classic event. He also won silver in the 50km classic event while countryman Jaak Mae added to the Salt Lake tally when he finished third behind Veerpalu in the 15km classic race.
Veerpalu returned four years later in Turin to again claim gold in the 15km classic event. His efforts were overshadowed by compatriot Kristina Smigun-Vahi, who won gold in the women's 10km classic event and the 15km pursuit.
Smigun-Vahi claimed Estonia's only medal in Vancouver in 2010, a silver in the 10km freestyle event.
