Biography

Norway’s Bjørn Dæhlie is the most successful male Nordic skier in Olympic history, with 12 Olympic medals and eight gold medals. In 1992, he won the combined pursuit, the 50 km. classical and was a member of the winning relay team, while in 1994, he was the winner of the 10 km. classical and the combined pursuit. To these gold medals he added silver in the 30 km. in 1992 and 1994, and a third silver in the relay in 1994. At Nagano in 1998, he continued his winning ways, with a gold medal in the 10 km. classical and the 50 km. race, anchored his Norwegian team to victory in the relay, and added a silver in the combined pursuit event. Dæhlie has been slightly less successful at the World Championships, although he did win five individual championships – 1997 10 kilometres, 1991 15 kilometres, 1993 and 1997 pursuit, and the 1993 30 kilometres. In addition, Dæhlie anchored winning Norwegian relay teams at the 1991, 1993, 1995 and 1997 World Championships. He retired after the 1999 World Cup season.
