Dropped off the face of the earth... Sort of...

I'm back. The last few days have been hectic, very hectic. Between training, team meetings and speaking engagements - I've had my plate full.

The Olympics are over, a bit sad really. But there is only 2 year to Beijing and 4 year before Vancouver hosts the next winter Olympics. As any good, self-respecting Norwegian, I am hoping for better results then. Talk about let down! Torino was supposed to be our time to shine, especially considering the record 13 Gold medals from Salt Lake City and the even more impressive results from the World Championship in Oberstdorf last year.

So why was it a near-catastrophe? Bad luck, illness and a miss in peak form. But, maybe in the grand scheme of things, this is good. Maybe it's good to get some distance and perspective. Lets learn from the mistakes and come back stronger next time. Also, these Olympics have proven that the depth and level of competition is better than ever before. And what could be better than that?
