2011 Ola Vigen Hattestad

The two-times Olympian has missed much of the season to date with a virus.

"My body is beginning to respond to training and I feel energetic," he told TV2. "It has been hard for a long time. In recent weeks it's been better and I've trained pretty well."

Vigen Hattestad knows the Czech venue well - he was crowned world champion in both the individual and team sprints there in 2009.
