Football expert Lars Tjærnås was the only man in a panel of four in NRK's TV studio discussion last summer when the World Cup was being broadcast from Brazil.  The others in the discussions were programme leader Carina Olset, former international footballer Lise Klaveness and Anne Sturød.

The response on twitter was positive, on balance.  The men's World Cup is usually dominated by a studio full of men, but NRK used an alternative approach that evening when Spain played Chile.  "Most studio guests are booked a long time beforehand, and are invited for their expert knowledge and competence", said NRK's sports editor Sjur Molven.  "Carina Olset and Lise Klaveness are regulars on this year's panel, and Anne Sturød has built up a massive knowledge of Spanish football through her programme-leader job on C-More.  So it happened that three of the panel were women that day".  

Lars Tjærnås was unfazed.  "I don't think about the gender of those I work with if they can do their job.  I feel privileged to be with such extremely knowledgeable and well prepared folk in the studio.  I thrived in their company", he said.

Temperature soaring in the North
« Reply #101 on: January 22, 2015, 09:22:04 AM »
After days of temperatures below minus 35 degrees, Karasjok on the Finnmark plateau is set for a heat wave.  Next week the remote northern town is expecting the thermometer to soar by 30 degrees - to minus 6.

Storm hits Norway
« Reply #102 on: February 07, 2015, 06:26:26 PM »
Storm 'Ole' has hit the coast of Norway and left 50,000 people without electric power.  The Lofoten Islands and their population of 18,000 have no power.  "We are hoping that people have alternative heating and light", said Arnt Winther of Lofoten Power.

Eight Hurtigruten ships are staying in port until the storm has passed.  Only 'Richard With' is at sea, on passage northwards to Harstad via an inland route that avoids the Lofoten Islands.  On board is passenger Espen Kirkesæther: "Just now the waves are 20 metres high.  They are hitting us on deck 7.  I am 50 and this is the worst I have known.  I am on the floor - the waves are so high I had to lie down", he told NRK.  He had travelled to Molde to collect a new car and take it home to Bodø, but now the ship is taking him onwards to Harstad.  "I am a captain in the defence force, but the captain of this ship is much tougher than me", he said.

The wind is expected to start diminishing at midnight.

12 hours in a snow storm
« Reply #104 on: February 10, 2015, 10:27:36 AM »
Hanna Lyrek said she was not worried about going missing for 12 hours in a storm.  The 15-year-old from Alta was one of four juniors taking part in a 50-kilometre dog-sleigh race, and lost her way.  She was brought down from the mountain at 3 a.m. on Sunday after lying in a snow hole for over 12 hours.

"It went all right, really.  I did as I have been taught and made a hole in the snow, set the sled up as a wind break, and sat down with all the dogs.  We kept each other warm", she said.  "I was talking to people on the phone but the battery ran out.  When I woke after sleeping for a while I didn't know if it was day or night, but I knew they would find me and concentrated on just sleeping and staying warm with the dogs", she said.

The arrangers had GPS positions for all the competitors but the bad weather meant that it took a while to reach all the missing people.  Lyrek says she now understands even better what is needed for security in this type of race.  "After a while I found my sleeping bag.  I really understand now how important it is to have the right equipment, and now it has all gone well I see this as a good experience for me as a young dog-driver", she said.  The compulsory equipment includes sleeping bag, wind sack and food for 24 hours.

"Although it was cold I managed to sleep but I woke several times after strange dreams.  When the rescuers came with their scooter I thought it was another dream, but after a while I knew they were there to bring me down", said Lyrek.  

She was offered a place on the scooter but decided to drive the dogs off the mountain by herself.  "With a scooter in front and behind we found the route.  I wanted to continue the race but they told me it had been stopped by the police.  As my clothes were really wet it was probably a good decision", she said.

The arrangers said on Sunday that all seven drivers who had asked for help were found in good condition.  Hanna's mother Trine Lyrek took part in the race herself and in the middle of the storm she heard that her daughter was missing.  "I was out in the same weather and was glad when I heard she was staying put and that they had spoken to her.  But I had Hanna in the back of my head all the time and when I came to a check point I was able to speak to the rescuers.  I was confident that she would know what to do and would master the conditions, but I couldn't continue while my daughter sat alone in the storm, so I phoned the handlers and asked them to bring me down", said Trine Lyrek.

Now Hanna is looking forward to the Finnmark 500-kilometre race in March, which has a 27-hour junior section.

Norway's team take sprint win
« Reply #105 on: February 22, 2015, 03:44:23 PM »
Norway's cross-country skiers took another important win on Sunday at Falun in Sweden.  "It was a perfect race.  Who needs Marit Bjørgen?", cried NRK's commentator Jann Post, after the finish of the team sprint, won by the duo of Falla and Østberg.

Ski queen Marit Bjørgen did not take part, but it means nothing when you have princesses like Ingvild Flugstad Østberg and Maiken Caspersen Falla.  The Norwegian girls were overwhelming in the battle to win, and congratulated each other in the snow.  "We were a real gold team today.  It means so much to stand here with Ingvild.  We have been through so much together", said Falla to NRK.

The two friends were both born in 1990 and have competed together for more than ten years.  On Sunday they formed a team that went all the way to the top.  "To achieve this together is really huge", said Falla.  Falla and Østberg competed together through the heats to reach today's Final.  They won their semifinal against Poland and Sweden with all three finishing inside one third of second.  At the end of the Final the team won by an eight-second margin over Sweden and Poland, who took silver and bronze.  "I'm very glad to manage so well when I really should not have been here today", said Østberg.  

There had been excitement in the Norwegian squad when the strongest card, Marit Bjørgen, took herself out of the running after a poor performance in the 15-kilometre, and Østberg stepped into her place.  "I knew I was in good form after Thursday's sprint, so I was disappointed not to be selected.  It's really a delight to be able to show I'm in form", she said.

On the third lap Østberg showed her cards and went ahead with Germany, leaving the challengers three seconds back.  Falla held the lead in the fourth stage and Østberg then had a hard job to pull away steadily with every push of her poles, but on the last lap there was no doubt who would win and Falla sailed into the full stadium alone eight second ahead of everyone.

1st Norway 14:29.57 Ingvild Flugstad Østberg, Maiken Caspersen Falla
2nd Sweden +8.17 Ida Ingemarsdotter, Stina Nilsson
3rd Poland +8.48 Justyna Kowalczyk, Sylwia Jaskowiec
4th Germany +11.57 Nicole Fessel, Denise Herrmann
5th Russia +29.19 Anastasia Dotsenko, Natalia Matveeva
6th France +30.26 Coraline Hugue, Celia Aymonier
Also ran: Switzerland, USA, Slovenia, Finland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, Great Britain, PR China, Australia, Hungary.  

Lars Bryne, Jørn Andre Lien, Yasmin Sunde Hoel http://www.nrk.no/sport/norge-utklasset-konkurrentene-pa-lagsprinten-1.12223293    


Norway's sprint duo have 88 days difference in their ages.  They first met in 2007, and in 2008 they were interviewed together at their World Cup debut.  "Our expectations are very low.  We are here just to experience the competition and gain a little experience.  Whatever happens, happens", said Østberg that day.

After a tough duel in the Under-17 national championship Falla won on a photo-finish.  In recent years they have both reached the top but they have never competed together in a team event.  They have taken turns to partner Marit Bjørgen.  As late as Saturday morning they trained together in the belief that Falla would race with Bjørgen.  "Ingvild was out of the team yesterday, I was out of the team a week ago.  For us to win together today is extra fun", said Falla today.

Sprint trainer Roar Hjelmset has followed both girls' careers from the start.  "They have been through a lot.  How many hours they have trained together I would not care to count up", he said.  "Obviously they are good friends with a lot of respect for each other and a good relationship".

Østberg plays football with Raufoss in division-2, and used to be a teammate of LSK's Ingrid Moe Wold at first-division Gjøvik.


Celine Brun-Lie (26) is retiring from the Norwegian cross-country ski team at the end of the season.

"It's something I have thought about for a while now, and I felt this is the right time to go.  I know it's unusual to retire so young and I could have kept my form for several years yet, but now is the time to do other things than just going quickly on skis", she said.

Th 26-year-old has raced in four world chanpionships.  She debuted at Liberec in 2009 with an 11th place, and this week she finished 9th at Falun, her highest point in the world-cup series.  The Vancouver Olympics were her best achievement.  In the world cup she stood on the podium nine times in sprint, but never won an event.

"Although I have never been the best, and we Norwegians are very demanding about what is required to be considered good, I have produced many good performances.  I am satisfied with my ski career", said Celine Brun-Lie.  "I'm looking forward to my new life but it will be sad not to see all the fantastic people round the national team every weekend. I have made friends for life, and perhaps I will be able to contribute to ski-preparation some time in the future", she told NTB.

Celine Brun-Lie is studying petroleum engineering at NTNU in Trondheim.

Johaug wins the 30 km
« Reply #107 on: February 28, 2015, 09:52:13 PM »
Therese Johaug had a majestic win in today's 30 km cross-country ski race.  She was still in the clouds when NRK interviewed her afterwards and her face was a blank.  "It was terrific.  I'm in good form and had a really great run.  People cheered me on all the way.  I noticed that especially at the end as I carried the Flag", said Johaug.

The 26-year-old took the Norwegian flag already 800 yards from the finish.  At that stage she had raced completely alone for 23 kilometres.  "One of the most outstanding performances we have seen at a World Cup", said NRK's expert Carl Henning Gran.

"I have looked forward to this race for a long time.  Marit has been the queen, and I have been wanting to do a top 30k, especially in classic style.  This win is one of my biggest moments, with the Holmenkollen 30k", said Johaug.  

After the interview she had a long hug and some words of congratulation from silver-medal winner Bjørgen.  "What Therese did today is very impressive.  It's so well deserved", smiled Bjørgen with her arm round Johaug.

Today Johaug attacked the Murder Slope on the first lap aggressively and gained a lead over the top competition.  Stars like Marit Bjørgen, Justyna Kowalczyk and Charlotte Kalla could only watch as the small figure of Johaug drew away from them.  They had to prepare themselves to battle for the silver and bronze medals early in the race.  Bjørgen gave Kalla a strong contest for the silver medal and eventually left her friend 39 seconds back.  But today Norway's cross-country queen had to see herself beaten by the princess from the farm at Dalsbygda where her family has lived for 400 years.          

Top six:
1: Therese Johaug (NOR) 1:24:47.0 average speed 21.2 km/hr
2: Marit Bjørgen (NOR) +52.3
3: Charlotte Kalla (SWE) +1:31.6
4: Kerttu Niskanen (FIN) +1:55.2
5: Sofia Bleckur (SWE) +2:09.3
6: Stefanie Böhler (GER) +2:36.9  

Norwegian finishers: 8th Heidi Weng, 10th Ingvild Flugstad Østberg, 12th Martine Ek Hagen.
Another 38 finished the race, two did not finish, three did not start.

Interview: http://www.tv2.no/v/890079/


For the second time at this year's World Cup competition Ingvild Flugstad Østberg stood at the starting line after having been dropped.  She arrived back in Falun at 2 am today after driving all the way from Oslo.  "I went home to Oslo on Thursday night and was in my apartment for less than 24 hours, but then the phone rang and I got the message that I would run in the 30 km race today after Kristin Størmer Steira withdrew", she said.  She was Norway's second reserve for the race.  

In the team sprint earlier at the same event, Marit Bjørgen pulled out at the last minute, leaving Østberg to run the race with Maiken Kaspersen Falla.  They won the race by a good margin and received a gold medal each.

Today's race preparation for the 30 km was not the best for Ingvild Flugstad Østberg.  "I just put everything into the car yesterday and set off.  I arrived in the night: so . . . not top preparation - but I had nothing to lose!", she said.  The journey is about 400 km.  

"At least you could relax?" - "Yes, you could say that.  I really wanted to run the 30 km at the start of this event, and I thought it would be fun, but it was not entirely as expected", said Østberg.  She made a late effort and achieved a top-ten finish.

Norwegians 1-2-3 and 5-6-7 at Holmenkollen
« Reply #108 on: March 15, 2015, 10:52:10 PM »
Only Sweden's Charlotte Kalla could finish among the Norwegians in the first seven finishers in today's 30-km cross-country ski race at Holmenkollen in Oslo.

Marit Bjørgen finished in 1:14:10.5, Therese Johaug was 11.6 seconds behind her and Astrid Jacobsen was 44.5 seconds behind the winner.  Charlotte Kalla finished fourth, followed by Heidi Weng, Ragnhild Haga and Martine Ek Hagen.

Specialist sprinters Maiken Caspersen Falla and Ingvild Flugstad Østberg finished 15th and 21st, with Silje Øyre Slind (22nd) and Marthe Kristoffersen (27th) in the top 30 finishers.

"It's an inspiration to watch Marit break away.  I have a lot to learn from her and what she does.  I am pleased with my race, it's just fantastic to race at Kollen", said Therese Johaug, who won the 30-km race in the World championships at Falun.

"I am motivated to continue, but exhausted after a long season.  We'll see what happens", said Marit Bjørgen after the race.  Johaug interrupted the TV interview by calling, "Continue, continue, continue!".  

Afterwards Johaug said, "She is a fantastic ski racer, a role-model and a best friend.  She is security itself.  So I really hope she will continue but I will support her whatever she decides".

Marit Bjørgen news
« Reply #109 on: June 25, 2015, 09:26:53 AM »
Hemsedal: Marit Bjørgen is expecting a baby at the end of December.  The ski star and her partner Fred Børre Lundberg are expecting a baby and she will not be seen on the ski slopes this winter.

After her World Cup success in Falun there was speculation around Bjørgen's future ski career.  On Tuesday she announced the change of plans.  "There are not so many big events this winter but I would like to come back in 2017 if everything goes well", she said.  

"I'm looking forward to the birth and I'm going to have a baby in my arms - I really am", she told NRK.  At the same time she feels some of the same worries that most expectant mothers feel.  "You have responsibility for a young one, which is completely new.  It's the end of thinking just about yourself.  That is what I'm tackling now but it's probably normal", she smiled.  Bjørgen has already been thinking about her future career and will continue to take part in national cross-country team meetings when she is in form.

"What does your mother think?" - "She was very surprised and she had never expected it this year", said Bjørgen with a laugh.

Her teammates were told two days before and the celebrations started when she announced the news to the press in Hemsedal.  "They found out on Sunday and were very happy, but no-one was expecting it", said Marit Bjørgen.

Footballer wins marathon
« Reply #110 on: June 26, 2015, 09:46:24 AM »
Yngvild Kaspersen ran a personal best in the Midnight Sun Marathon 10-kilometre race around Tromsø at the weekend.  "A real delight - I'm very happy with it", said the former Fløya defender.  "I started a little faster than I planned, and noticed that it was getting tough during the run.  But was all right in the end".

The winner told Nordlys that she was not a hundred per cent happy, despite the win.  "I really had a goal of finishing in under 35 minutes, so this was not altogether what I wanted", she said.

The MSM was a big success and a big folk festival, but there's always next year.  "I will be here next year and will hoping to make it inside 35 minutes", said Yngvild Kaspersen.

Heidi Weng spots her chance
« Reply #112 on: July 15, 2015, 10:39:50 PM »
Heidi Weng has spotted her chance to take a few more wins in next winter's international cross-country ski season.  But she is not yet after Marit Bjørgen's place as anchor-woman in the relay.

Weng is enjoying a summer holiday in the mountains in her 'hytta', but the video (in the link below) shows that she has her own individual way of enjoying the break.  Last season she made it on to the podium 15 times, collecting a silver medal on eight occasions.  On five of those visits it was Marit Bjørgen who stood above her.  

But now Bjørgen is expecting her first child and will not compete over the coming winter.  Weng is very clear what this means for her as she puts herself through continual training sessions at her hytta at Skeikampen, up in the mountains 35 minutes from Lillehammer.  "Obviously it increases my chance to win events in the World Cup.  Last summer on the days when I was in my best form, Marit was also in peak condition.  So on the days when I finished second, it was Marit who beat me", she said to NRK.  

The 23-year-old feels that she is having her best summer's training ever.  She has never worked harder and she has never been more determined that the goal is to be the best in the world.  But Weng takes nothing for granted.  "I feel I have trained well and am better than ever, but it can all disappear", she said.

"Are you available for the anchor position in the relay?" - "No thanks!  I can happily miss that.  I don't want it yet - I'll wait a few years", said Norway's first-leg racer in the sprint relay.  She has never successfully sprinted against Bjørgen in the final dash of a race.  "If it all goes well, as I hope, it will be really boring to hear: "you won, but Marit wasn't there!", said Weng.

The girl from Ytre Enebakk sees the possibilities with Bjørgen off the scene.  And she does not expect Bjørgen to be any easier to beat when she comes back later.  "I think she will be even better than before.  She is going to win everything.  We saw Liv Grete Skjelbreid - she won everything after she had her baby.  I think Marit is going to be really good!", said Heidi Weng.

Kaspersen wins in Chamonix
« Reply #113 on: July 23, 2015, 10:17:58 AM »
Yngvild Kaspersen gave up football when she discovered a talent for running last year, and made a name for herself in local races around Tromsø.  Now she is branching out into international fell-running.  

The 20-year-old played as a defender for Fløya in division-1 and also played a few times for Norway's Under-19s before taking up her new sport, and won the 10-kilometre Midnight Sun Marathon earlier in the summer.  On Friday she tried something new when she turned out in the skyrunning event at Chamonix, France: she finished in fourth place.  

On Saturday she did even better when she won the 23-kilometer fell run.  "Today I really saw it as a training run and I was very surprised at how well it went", she said after the race, which took the runners up to a height of 5200 ft.  There were over 1500 entrants in the men's and women's events.  Kaspersen won in 2.29.20, a minute and a half ahead of Maite Maiora from Spain.  

Maiora is no novice, having taken bronze four weeks ago in the World Cup in ultrarunning.  "I'm very pleased.  It was something I was not expecting", Kaspersen told Nordlys.  She is not committed either way to running on the flat or in the mountains.  "I did a little fell-running last year because I think it's difficult to do only one thing.  We'll have to see how it develops", she said.

After the racing in France at the weekend she is on the way home to have a more relaxed time taking part in local runs again around Tromsø.  In the medium term she is thinking of joining a club or a regional organisation to help with everyday things.  "It would obviously help me to have a bit of support so that I don't have to be my own trainer", said Yngvild Kaspersen.  

Anders Mo Hanssen http://www.nordlys.no/yngvild-kaspersen/loping/friidrett/yngvild-20-helt-til-topps-i-fjellop-i-frankrike-slo-vm-medaljor/s/5-34-191886


This came out in early June this year: Yngvild Kaspersen gave up football and took up running, and she has never looked back.  It's a choice she has been very happy with.

"Yes, very.  I'm thriving with the running.  It has completely changed me as a person", said Kaspersen.  "I feel I have found something I really like, and found myself, in a way.  I enjoy this very much and it's something I will have at the top of the list in future".

Her interest is mainly in 10 kilometres, a distance at which she set a new local women's record with a time of 35.58, which is 16 seconds behind her personal best.  She puts in ten to twenty hours of training each week and focusses on becoming better all the time.  "I work very hard and aim to be as good as possible.  I will continue as long as it's fun, and I feel it will be a long time", said Kaspersen.

She is not planning a return to the football field in the near future.  "No, that isn't on the cards", she smiled.
