The results of Haug and Grøttumsbråten in the 18 km event should have been disqualified: as entrants of the Nordic combined event, they hadn't entered their names in this event. Tapani Niku wasn't however willing to be awarded the gold medal, though he later received a gold medal from the French Alp Club.
All three medalists in the 50 km also finished in their same positions in the nordic combined event.
Cross-country skiers from the United States only competed in the 18 km event. Fifteen cross-country skiers competed in both events.
A total of 59 cross-country skiers from twelve nations competed at the Chamonix Games:
