Olympics Day 2: Norway

Sports, Uncategorized No Comment

A few of my friends decided to pick countries and keep track of their performance during the Olympics. It’s not a competition. I’m not even sure how it will work. My country is Norway.

On Day 2 (Saturday), there were 5 medal events. Norway did not compete in the Women’s Moguls or the Men’s Short Track 1500m. This is disappointing because these were by far my two favorite events of the day. In each of the three events they did compete in they at least finished in the top 10. In the Men’s Speed Skating 5000m, all three finished in the top 10, but no medal.

Ski Jumping – Individual Normal Hill
9. JACOBSEN Anders
12. HILDE Tom
18. BARDAL Anders
23. ROMOEREN Bjoern Einar – Won Bronze in Team in 06

Speed Skating – Men’s 5000m
4. BOKKO Havard – Competed in 06 but DNF 1500m and DNP in Team Pursuit, but I’m pretty sure he made the trip to Turin.
10. HAUGLI Sverre

Biathlon – Women’s 7.5k Sprint
What I gathered from watching this was that if you missed a shot, you had to take a penalty lap, which costs about 30 seconds. I didn’t realize it was such a severe penalty. I thought they just added a few seconds and you kept going.
10. FLATLAND Ann Kristin Aafedt
33. BERGER Tora – Competed in 5 events in 06. Best finish was 5th in the 4x6km Relay.
70. EIKELAND Liv Kjersti

Five medal events are scheduled on Day 3. Norway will compete in …
Biathlon Men’s 10k Sprint (4)
Speed Skating Women’s 3000m (1)
Nordic Combined (3)
Not competing: Luge Men’s Single and Men’s Moguls

My knowledge is limited to what I found on the Vancouver 2010 site.
