Kort om Kultur
Norwegians are famous for their dominance of winter sports that aren't popular in most other countries. But this summer, look out for some stars right here in the Northwest at the World Athletics (Track and Field) Championships!
Karsten Warholm may have been the star of the Olympics last summer as he won an impressive gold in the men's 400m hurdles in a world record time of 45.94 seconds. He's understandably very popular in Norway with his Viking screams at the start line, not-very-Norwegian showmanship, and overwhelming dominance on the track. Watch the news, though, as he may not be able to run due to a hamstring injury earlier this year.
But possibly even more popular in Norway is the reigning men's Olympic 1,500m champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen. He's been more dominant this season than last, running away from packs of Kenyans with regularity. His two brothers are also elite runners, and with them and his overbearing father/coach, his reality TV series in Norway brings ratings and groans.
The women's side will also likely feature Norwegians at the world championships. The 400m hurdles may have Amalie Iuel make the final, and look out for Karoline Bjerkeli Grøvdahl in the 5,000 m and/or 10,000m. Neither is a medal favorite, but their presence indicates a stronger Norwegian team than normal along with the men's team.
I'll be in Eugene for the men's 1,500m final on July 19, rooting for a Norwegian win. You can watch it on TV, or maybe I'll see you there!

(Did you know?)
DID YOU KNOW:  December 10th marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Trolls' Den.  To properly mark this event, the bartenders are planning a monthly celebration on the last Saturday of each month in the Trolls' Den through November.  The first event in June was a 50's Sock Hop and the July event will have a Harry Potter theme.  The finale in December will be a grand event in the Marine Room with the date TBD depending on facility rentals.  Watch the newsletters and all the social media for updates.  Come and celebrate the Trolls' Den, the lodge, and all our wonderful members with us!
