Kristin Stormer Steira (NOR), who was forced to skip the past two World Cups in Russia and the Czech Republic due to low weight concerns from her coaches, will be back in a bib this weekend in Poland, reported Langrenn.com.

Steira competed last time on World Cup almost one month ago in Otepää where she scored 25th place in 10 km classic and a few days later she conquered bronze medal at Norwegian nationals in Voss over 15 km skiathlon.

Martin Johnsrud Sundby, Niklas Dyrhaug, Eldar Rønning, Marit Bjoergen, Ingvild Flugstad Østberg, Heidi Weng, Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen and Marthe Kristoffersen travel directly from Nove Mesto to Szklarska Poreba to prepare for Friday's and Saturday's races.
