09:00 pm: FIS nordic ski world championship Val di Fiemme 2013 tribute
Fact of life: Norwegians + winter = massive ski enthusiasm
Since the world champs closed last weekend, and since the final results ended up something like this...

One feels tribute must be given to our amazing athletes.
An hey! Pictures of sporty young people - things could be worse, right!? :o)




Silver in the men´s sprint...




...and gold AND bronze in the women´s sprint...


... and silver and bronze in the men´s 30 km duathlon....




...and gold AND silver AND bronze... AND 4th on the women´s 15 km duathlon...




Gold AND silver in the women´s 10 km freestyle...




...and gold AND bronze in the men´s 15 km freestyle...




...aaaaand gold in the women´s 4 X 5 km relay...




....and gold in the men´s 4 x 10 km relay!






And finally: Gold and bronze on the women´s 30 km classic.

...but you know - that´s all.
Except...

Happiest victory celebration:



Best cry after victory:



Coolest crossing of finishing line:



And finally, in case anyone was unsure of the proper way of celebrating a gold medal - the more traditional way of popping the champers:



or the more original way of stripping down to your undies and jump in the pool:





Aaah, good times :o)
...how many days until the Winter Olympics?

Congratulations!
Looking at that medal table it looks like Norway pretty much wiped the floor with the competition.

So, how are you ever going to fill your time now that it's all over?

Nice icon btw. :)

Thanks, although I had nothing to do with it... ;o)

I´ll probably be moaning quite a lot when season is finished after Easter I´m afraid. Ye be warned. Because then the next season won´t start again until late November.

Ah thanks, I had to have at least one icon of the man... ;o)
