It is not excluded that the famous Norwegian biathlete OLE Einar Bjoerndalen will perform at the winter Olympics in 2018.
Recall Bjoerndalen failed to qualify in the national team of Norway – he did not fulfill the necessary criteria for getting into the team. Bjoerndalen had to get into the top six in one of the individual races of the world Cup or twice to get into the top 12.
However, according to NRK, the IOC can give him a personal quota. “It would be a nice gesture,” commented the news the head coach of the national team of Norway Siegfried Mazet.
Himself , the veteran said that he was able to win a medal at the Games in Pyeongchang.
