The World Ski Championship has sent hours of direct TV and updates from Oslo over the last 11 days, where skiers from many countries have been competing for medals and to become famous and rich. PETTER NORTHUG (seen on the big screen in the photo) was the Norwegian skier who won the most gold and silver medals! More info. from http://www.oslo2011.no/en/
Many workplaces have noticed an increase in internet activity during the working day since the games began.
Quite a lot of places have put up big screens, like here at the airport.
Even the Norwegian Government had a break to watch the championship on the TV today.
Take a look here (our foreign minister to the left. our PM sitting next to the woman in a red jumper.)

Sports are sometimes unifying forces for countries. That is one of the best reasons for the Olympics.

I watched an amazing image on tv: all participants as seen from above before a departure, they were so many!

It's a big sport in a few countries. Petter was outstanding. As was Marit.

I did this in the past, mostly for football, but sometimes even for sky events!
Yesterday I found a nice package waiting at mom's and my son was very interested in its content. Thank you, I really like the scarf!

Hei Gunn, og takk for hyggelig kommentar på bloggen min. Må bare understreke at det ikke er jeg som er Jeanette, jeg fikk bare lyst til å skrive om Lofoten Sjokoladefabrikk på bloggen min.

OK, men det gjorde du på en så bra måte, at jeg som er sjokoman plutselig fikk VELDIG lyst på sjokolade nå. Lykke til med bloggen din!:)
