Someone asked me why the Norwegian winter sport championships were held in South Korea this year. The 2018 Olympic Medal statistics are pretty awesome seen from a Norwegian point of view, but then again – we do have a really long time love/hate relationship with snow and ice, large parts of the year.
That shows when you look at the all time statistics as well.

No ice-swimming this year?
Terence Petersen-Ajbro Nope, I had shoulder surgery in November – so swimming is off the table for now.
One of our TV channels made a rather poor taste video with some of the athletes. It is supposed to be funny, but I don’t know… it is a bit over the top.

Denmark still has no medals, but then it has neither a proper winter nor a proper summer!
True story: My first wife gave up slalom after colliding with and knocking down two danes in the slopes. The danes were not to fault 🙂
I have skied twice in my life, both times in Norway. Apart from not being able to stop or turn, it went quite well.
We all stop, eventually. With a little luck – we survive it too 🙂
Needless to say, I cannot drive a car either.
Germans are equally crazy nowadays. I have yet to watch a single minute of the Olympics.
Feel that way about winter here in Canada too.
