Golberg and Roth to the Olympics – VG

Golberg and Roth to the Olympics - VG

Cross-country skater Harald Østberg Amundsen (23) is not allowed to play in Beijing. On Monday, 18 new athletes received a ticket to enter China.


– It was actually a little bit as I expected. Suggest Roth has been doing better than me lately. I had had Trouble with Tor D Ski 15km into the heat, which should have been avoided if you were on the right side of the Olympic team, Amundsen tells VG.

Management across the country has chosen to award Anne Kjersti Kalvå, Mathilde Myhrvold, Pål Golberg and Sjur Røt the last four spots on the Olympic team.

– It’s very good. I really got out. As was the case in Tour de Ski, I feel like I have something to do in China. Roth tells VG that it was, so I’m glad it went my way.

He understands if Amundsen is frustrated, but has no doubt that the 23-year-old will get chances later.

– Harald is still young and promising. He barely won the World Cup last year before he won the World Cup medal. Perhaps the most promising young man we have in Norway. Roth says he has qualities that transcend many of us.

You should stay at home: Harald Østberg Amundsen (right) cheered for World Cup bronze in Oberstdorf, but didn’t get a chance at the Olympics, Hans Christer Holund took the gold, while Simen Hegstad Krüger won the silver.

In the same race in Oberstdorf that Amundsen missed, he came root on the platform.

– I have ambitions to fight for a medal, says the veteran from Voss.

Amundsen Talk Bronze in the 15 km freestyle at Oberstdorf a year ago, and was nominated for “Breakthrough of the Year” at the Sports Gala. But the Olympic debut will take place in Italy in 2026 at the earliest, as it appears now.

– You did everything in every race to get to the right side, so it’s hard to crash into a goal you had in your head, but the knocked out team is right. You always get disappointed when you don’t achieve goals and you don’t achieve dreams. But I neither lie nor cry, says Amundsen.

– I tried to do everything, but there were those who were better than me. The Olympics in Italy might be the perfect timing for me.
