– First of all, congratulations very much for the Olympic success that you and all of Norway have had so far at the tournament.
That’s how television giant NBC began its question to the athletes during Thursday’s press conference. Norway tops the medal stats with 14 gold, 7 silver and 8 bronze.
I think it is characteristic of Norwegian families.
Watch how Norway took the gold in the biathlon relay in Sports News at the top!
Of these, the athletes have five gold, four copper, and one silver. This made NBC ask the question:
“How is that possible?”
There are many people who do winter sports in Norway, as it is our national sport. It is said that Norwegians are born skiing on their feet, so we have a good culture of skiing and winter sports. The Winter Olympics and the World Cup on skis are the most important for us, answers the coach of the men’s national team, Egil Christiansen.
-First of all, because we have very good winters in Norway, we ski all the time, all of us, is the explanation for Marty Olsbow of Roseland who herself started competing many years late “I just went skiing for fun.”
– But even though I didn’t compete, I went skiing with my family and I think it’s typical of Norwegian families.
Not built for success
in a An article in the Washington Post author Chuck Culpeper attempts to To explain Norwegian success, he writes:
“It’s time to ask the question again: How can a small country govern the way it operates and outsmart countries with very similar populations and climates?”
Culpeper explains it in a Norwegian way of thinking. Since I was a kid, I’ve learned that success isn’t everything. Refers to a quote from Vetle Sjåstad Christiansen:
Our system is not built for success. It is a system of joy and happiness. Enjoy sports and stay healthy. Maybe that’s why we’re so successful, because we really enjoy what we’re doing and then it’s also easy to work hard.
The women’s national team coach, Huber Cass ambassador, believes that the Norwegians grew up with winter sports as a big reason for the success.
It’s also about how important winter sports are to Norwegians, the way we train and the experiences we have inside the Olympic summit. Cass says it’s in our spine.
– how was your childhood?
When Norwegian athletes tried to explain success to the best of their ability, the athletes’ childhood was next.
The chances of getting a medal are very high when you love what you do
The question of how important winter sports was made Targé Poe originate from memories.
– We come from a typical Norwegian family and have a lot of outdoor activities, especially on the weekends. We never looked at it as training, we’ve been out with the family on skates and our main goal was to get a piece of chocolate when we arrived, sit back, light a fire and enjoy. The ski trip itself was never fun, but it was getting there. But you had to ski to get there, Big Brother Bo smiles.
– I think he was deceived by our parents, and I think it is typical in Norwegian families with lots of outdoor activities and lots of joy. If you have a hundred kids who have done this over several years, you might want to see one of them at the Olympics 20 years later. The chances of getting a medal are pretty big when you love what you do and it’s in your DNA, he says.
