Norwegian mens team donates to tsunami relief!

The Norwegian mens biathlon team of Ole Einar Bjorndalen, Alexander Os, Emil Svenson and Tarjei Boe had an exciting finishing lap to take the relay gold in Friday's race! It was a close finish with Russia 13 seconds behind and Ukraine 20 seconds behind. In thought of the tsunami that hit Japan the same day, the team donated 10 000 euros to the victims. A good example of how been a professional athlete can be more than self glory!

By the way, ever do any skiing in NY or MA?

Thats where I go, Gore Mountain, Jiminy Peak, Broady... The best feeling in the world is to be on the mountain!

I would love to train for it and compete like you! Very inspiring
