Ragnhild Haga – the gold medal winning skier
Ragnhild Haga was not the crowd favorite at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in the women’s cross-country skiing event. Haga was competing against Charlotte Kalla of Sweden. According to Haga, she was frightened of Kalla because of the latter’s commendable performance as a skier.
Haga accelerated during the second lap, taking a huge lead while crossing the 8.4-km split and kept her speed up until the finish line. She kept herself motivated during the last downhill so that she wouldn’t do something silly and miss out on the opportunity to win the gold medal for her country.
Net worth and career-graph of the skier
The net worth of Ragnhild Haga is still under review, but by looking at the career-graph of Haga, it can be estimated that she has earned a fair amount of net worth for herself.

Though it was heart-breaking for Haga to finish just short of the top three in the 2015 Tour de Ski, the skier took it in stride and worked hard to bounce back. Her net worth is also slowly but steadily building up as her performance graph goes up.
