Biography

Though slightly overshadowed by compatriot Bjørn Dæhlie, Thomas Alsgaard’s sports career is highly impressive. In three Olympics, he has won six medals, including five gold. He has also won six World Championships, including four relay titles. He lost the opportunity for a seventh title when, as Norway’s anchor, he lost the relay gold to Austria’s Christian Hoffmann in Ramsau (Austria). In 1998, Alsgaard grabbed the overall cross country World Cup, and the prestigious Holmenkollen medal in 2001.
