    Norway Thread

    in an attempt to be less sarcastic.

    Medal chances:

    Andreas Thorkildsen - chucking the javelin
    Jaysuma Saidy Ndure - special import from Gambia
    Alexander Dale Oen - first swimmer from Norway since the Black Death
    women's football team - led by the inimitable Solveig Gulbrandsen

    women's handball team - funded by Danish milk
    race walkers - er, yeah...
    Olaf Tufte - who trains 1500 hours a year - possibly the Norwegian athlete who trains the most - along with running a farm
    skeet shooting (I think)
    Gunn Rita Dahle FlesjŚ - most winning athlete in women's mountainbike, though has just had a huge injury.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    I watched the Norwegian women's football team play Sweden on the Gold Coast before the 2000 Olympics. Top night!

    They can't with skis on either tbf.

    We have a couple of world class shooters, but it's all down to luck and standard deviation in t' end.

    After the dire, shameful performance at the winter olympics we need at least four or five gold medals here to redeem ourselves. What's worse is that once the winter olympics were over the Norwegians started winning everything again

    First gold for Norway! What a sprint from Olaf Tufte!

    To boot, Tore Brovold won silver in skeet shooting 15 minutes ago. Top work.

    Obviously I'm disappointed that Drysdale didn't win it, but congrats to the Norwegian rower for what I believe is back to back Olympic golds.
