Yeah, but let's not forget, the Norwegians don't dope! They are morally the best professional athletes out there!! Squeaky clean. Think of all the great, clean legends of the past: Daehlie, Alsgaard, Jevne, Sivertsen, Ulvang, Mikkelsplass, Langli, Estil, Hjelmeset, Skari...Kokoso said:Thank you for answer!Gracey said:I'm an Australian living in Norway and in my son's class, from 2nd grade on, only 2 boys aren't skiing for the local club and one is Polish the other from Sudan.Kokoso said:I'd like to ask someone (anyone) with some insight on number of registered xc skiers in Norway and other countries, cause that is definitely something influencing performance of their athletes. I've heard that 4 out of 5 milion Norwegians are registered (that is huge relative number) and kids entering 4th class at primary school are mostly registered in not one, but two ski clubs. I wonder about about comparison with other nations. Thank you for your opinions!
Yesterday Johaug had 20 seconds on 2,2 km, 1:20 in finish. Isn't that a lot? With what margin did Mühlegg won once upon a time?
