IT are three races that stand out as the most surprising in modern English langrennshistorie. Anyone got a result, hardly anyone had believed, performed by athletes who lately, more than most have got experience how vulnerable you are as toppidrettsutøver.
These unique achievements have also another common feature. They are made by the performers as outside of the track is strikingly quiet and friendly, and that can withstand both the fame and adversity better than most.
Nevertheless, it is the actual experiences that lift the Find in sandnes, norway Krogh, Simen Hegstad Krüger and Ragnhild Haga as high up on the hederslista of the best Norwegian cross-country skiers.Krogh considered to replace the ski with butikkjobb: - I felt useless
For the moments they gave us was a rare fine.
THAT Find-sandnes, norway Krogh with a gap of 17 seconds would be able to turn the Sergey Ustjugov on sisteetappen during the relay in Lahti world cup in 2017 was possible. Nordmannens asked was good enough for that. The special was the way it happened.
For Find-sandnes, norway never did let the world then by far the best skier close this luka. Under extremely difficult conditions with løssnø up to the ankles, he let in a little bit more speed every time the Russian approached from behind. Usjugov remained a shadow a few metres away through the ten-mile snødrevet all the way to Norway had taken the ninth straight world cup gold in the 4x10km relay.
There was a TV drama that amaze still. How was it possible that it is usually far more løpssterke the Russian failed to come up in the course of a mile through the beautiful Finnish pine forest.
my Legs were burning after ten metres. It was not fun at all. When I passed the coach Arild after 75 meters, I was stick stiff. But I couldn't abandon the guys, " said Finn-sandnes, norway unaccustomed dramatically afterwards.
It is rare this finnmarkingen dramatiserer anything about his own life. This feat gets to be the exception. Guaranteed the most exciting Norwegian CHAMPIONSHIP relay, where the coach Tor Arne Hetland tears of joy in the NRK tv interview afterwards.
IT was not to believe that quite fresh Simen Hegstad Krüger would become the OLYMPIC champion in the 30km skiathlon. He had not spurtstyrke enough to it, thought the experts in advance. And then there was nidtegningen of him as an uninteresting loser in the middle of the controversial qualification for the winter games in Pyeongchang. This OLYMPICS-the race came just a few weeks after Krüger and a couple of teammates of his was featured on debate programmes on NRK-TV that a bunch of people who went best on idealtid.Worse than to scrap Northug
along the Way in the race, there was no reason to believe anything. For Simen disappeared from the TV screens already in the from the start area with a fall in which he broke the stake and went with the two russians, while kondisjonsfenomenet Ivo Niskanen went up the pace of the classic section of the field far, far ahead.
It was all the snow and the vagaries of who did that Im still coming back in the medaljekampen. The young boy, who supposedly lacked the X-factor, was suddenly the X-factor among verdensstjernene. For it was not by chance that it was he who walked away from tetgruppa a few kilometers before the finish in a gentle even slope where Simen was so well trained that he did not even noticed that he twitched. So strong is the Im in competition.Only 99 have gone faster
the Rest of the mirakelløpet is a beautiful story about friendship and two training partners that were loyal to the Norwegian lagtaktikken, and let the one who lunged first, get the win in peace. Even did they took silver and bronze.
WHEN Ragnhild Haga few days later, won the 10km free, was not to believe. Admittedly, she had experienced great progress, but this OLYMPICS-the race was supposed to be the last major settlement between the skidronningen Marit Bjørgen and challenges Charlotte Called. Here on favorittdistansen had the Swedish yndlingen finally a seierssjanse against Marit. It was not to talk about someone else.
instead distanced Ragnhild all, and, in a way, the sport is hardly seen. Never has any girl gone more freestyle than Haga on the windswept golf course in Korea. The memory of that time, Thomas Alsgaard was the OLYMPIC champion on the white runner in the Lillehammer 1994; thus, even a Norwegian race for the history books.So angry that I would shoot her
THE the story is written still for these three. Now right before the world cup is not even these three world cup and OLYMPIC champions with their fresh achievements, ensure a few things. Ragnhild Haga struggling surprising with the technique after a ramp-up that promised well, Simen Hegstad Krüger is the wreck at a distance, he just as easily could have won again, while the Find-in sandnes, norway Krogh finally found the normal speed after a bad season with adversity. The challenge is only that any other Norwegian runners go even faster.
All three can handle adversity just as great. They are of course sad, but stand on on to come back and amaze us again.
no Matter; the moments that give them the deserved space on the hederslista of the best Norwegian skilpere, shall no man take from them.OLYMPIC champion despaired of formsvikten: - I have tried everything
