What a fantastic week! I don’t know what has impressed me most. There have been so many memorable moments, I can hardly count them. When the Norwegian men worked their way up from a 19th place, after their first shooting, and scored the gold medal this Friday I was a total wreck from excitement.
And today Tora Berger did a fantastic effort which placed Norway firmly at the top op of the Medal Statistics this World Championship 2012 in Ruhpolding. I don’t know where that woman gets her strength from… She seemed so enormously tired today from all the races she has been doing this week, but she did it – gathered unimaginably strength and won the gold medal.
The entire bunch of Norwegian athletes – in the World’s Best and Finest sport – Biathlon (practically the only sport I watch) has given me so many brilliant and joyous moments this week!
