Student Reading: Medals, yes, but not the Olympics Norway planned


The all time leader in medals, Norway, has been having a disappointing run of it this round of the Olympics. It’s easy to think about the Olympics only from a USA-centric point of view (cause why not?), but this article will pull you out of that for a few minutes, and let you feel the disappointment and hopes of the Norwegians.

As always, please read at least the first paragraph of the article, although I’d encourage more.. so you can get to this quote:

The shock wasn’t just so much that the Norwegians lost the races, though that was bad enough. It was that their next-door neighbors, those uppity Swedes, won both.
