We're about to have an olympic break here, so what's gonna happen here? Well these things:
- I am gonna follow all Wing news
- I am gonna follow the hockey tournament and especially the Red Wing players
- I am gonna write about the Norwegian hockey team
- I am gonna write about Norway and their athletes in general.
- The 22nd I go to Vienna on a student trip (lectures, sightseeing and stuff at day, party every night) and will be unable to post until I get home on the 3rd of March.
So... I am going to write a Senators preview later today, but here is a preview of today in the Olympics.
- Ski jump, small hill - The most boring of the ski jump hills, but I am a bit nostalgic about it as I was present when Espen Bredesen and Lasse Ottesen had a double Norwegian victory at Lillehammer. The reigning champion is the retired Norwegian drug addict and bad boy Lars Bystøl. Trying to defend his title are four Norwegians: Anders Jacobsen, Anders Bardal, Bjorn Einar Romoren and Tom Hilde. None of them are favourites, but they all have a chance. Jacobsen is probably the best one of them.
- Downhill skiing - Aksel Lund Svindal is among the favourites
- Biathlon sprint, women - Both Tora Berger and Ann Kristin Flatland will fight for the gold, though a victory would be surprising.
To get you in the mood, here is the royal anthem, national anthem and national hymn performed in front of our royal family:
