Actually think it’s been a bit low for Norway so far. But I’m sure there is more to come.

Joking aside, nothing wrong about being a patriot and cheering your nation on in sports. Important that it doesn’t turn into chauvinism or ultra nationalism. Respect your opponent.

We are fortunate in Norway when it comes to winter sports. It’s not genetic, it’s cultural and climate based.

Cross country skiing is the most popular sport here.

Which winter olympic athlete has made you the most joyful from a sporting achievement? Or which medal have you cheered the hardest for?

Luge and Downhill are probably my favorites but I think from a pure sport perspective short track speed skating is probably my favorite.

Too many.. Can't choose...
Actually I think winning the team figure skating gold was a great achievement. Our ice dancers are mesmerizing.

Short Track Speed Skating for me. That sport is so fast and intense.

Was really powerful watching North Koreans, skate in South Korea, to a Beatles song (A Day In the Life)
sports and music really do bring the world together.

He's pretty awesome, but I gotta go with the local Red Gerard's win at street snowboarding or whatever they called the one with all the grinding rails. His 1440 triple backflip was fucking gnarly.

I think extreme snowboarding is the only thing in the Olympics I give a fuck about.
