Vacncouver 2010 summary

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

The Vancouver Olympics was great. I guess I’ve watch a bit too much on television, but it was a great watch. The Norwegian broadcaste NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) went HD on February the 12th, the same day as the Olympics startet. So it’s have been great to watch everyting in HD.

The Olympics started tragically with the death of Nodar Kumaritashvili in luge training.

In the eyes of us Norwegians, it was a great Olympics. It started a bit slow, but in the end we got 9 gold medals, 8 silver and 6 bronze medals. That’s a total of 23 medals, only surpassed USA, Germany and Canada.

I find curling very fascinating and I’m following the Norwegian team which do very well at the moment. They lost the opening match against Canada. But have since won against USA, Germany, Switzerland and China.

But what interessting, is all the buzz the Norwegian team have got over their crazy pants, also referred to as clown pants. The Facebook group The Norwegian Olympic Curling Team’s Pants have at the time of writting 182 000 followers. I quess Loudmouthgolf.com have had some extra hits this week. You can also buy similar pants on eBay.

It’s not only Norwegian press that have written about the curling pants. Msnbc.msn.com and usatoday.com are some of the international ones. The Today Show have also covered the new fashion, which you can watch bellow.

Vancouver 2010 has startet, 16 days of Glory. I watched the opening ceremony last night (European time, Friday 12th Vancouver time). It was a nice ceremony, and there was also a 1 minute silence after the tradical death of Nodar Kumaritashvili.

I’ll be watching a lot of TV the next two weeks. I’m hoping for lots of medals the Norwegian participant.
