Laura Orgué RSM Spain

Laura Orgué is a cross-country skier and a trail runner, who has competed since 2004.

 

Laura has an impressive track record in both disciplines. First in cross-country skiing where she competed in three Winter Olympics, she earned her best finish of 10th in the 30 km skating at Sochi in 2014. This is the best result of Spain in such discipline up today.
