About the Nordic Ski World Championships

About the App Project

The Project
The Nordic World Ski Championships app is an independent project and not associated with the International Ski Federation (FIS) in any way.

The focus of the app is to deliver accurate, well organized and transparent content about the World Championships sporting events from a variety of perspectives - focusing on an individual athlete or a nations achievements over time. Or focusing on a particular sport or a particular event and its champions and medalists.

In recent years we have expanded our database to include some of the Continental Games as well as several World Championships and we will develop further in this direction over the coming years. We aim to provide clear historical data on all big sport events we cover in addition to schedules and medal tables of all sorts for ongoing events.

What we have
An important element in the encyclopedic character of the app is the gathering of all results of all athletes in all events at all World Championships (and to the level of detail it makes sense). We are not quite there yet and this is really a project under constant development that will never actually reach a final closure.

At the moment our database holds a complete medals-result overview for all events at all the nordic ski World Championships since 1924. However there is still some way to go before we have all results of all athletes that have competed in the World Championships. In some respects we are nearly (or as far as we can tell) leading with respect to some of our historical overviews and medal standings for example when it comes to all-time medal overviews in a specific sport (for athletes, nations or continents) or medal standings for a specific nation (from an athletes or a sports perspective).

The Setup
The app is based on our Olympian Database Project that focuses on Olympic Games and World Championships in various sports. The database has been developed as a family enterprise over several generations and is run by a small group of people/experts with different backgrounds in leadership and research.

We are indebted to the wikimedia designers Thadius856 & Parutakupiu for releasing the sports pictograms into the public domain. And we also build our work with the database on World Championships and Olympic historians whose work have paved the way for our decisions and developments. Thank you to all of you!

The app uses the three letter olympic country codes that might be helpful to you in reading for example the medal standings on the website.
