My favorites from the OL in Vancouver 2010 (So far)

These are the guys that really shows the spirit of the Olympics and the ones that (in my oponion) is most deserving of our support! These great guys have no hope of winning any medals, but they still participate and do theur very best. Please help me cheer for them!

Norway is normaly one of the countries that do well in the winter olympics. So far it has been a dread to watch our athlets in vancouver, but we still have high hopes for them. So far we have 2 silver medals and 1 bronze.

Emil Hegle Svendsen - Silver at men's biathlon 10 km Sprint
Aksel Lund Svindal - Silver at men's downhill
Marit Bjørgen - Bronze at womens cross country 10 km Free

So it is a little comfort for me to show you this little list over medals. Norway tops the list over total amount of medals in the Winter Olympics. And even though we have not taken any gold jet, it is still quite a number differens down to number two...
