Description

Norway competed at the Olympics of 1900 and has since missed only the 1980 Olympic Games. Norway has competed at every Olympic Winter Games. Until 1984, Norway could claim to be the top nation at the Olympic Winter Games in terms of medals and gold medals won. In that year, however, the Soviet Union surpassed Norway in both categories. With the demise of the Soviet Union, Norway again tops the list of most medals won by a single country at the Olympic Winter Games with 303, 107 of them gold medals. Norway shares with Liechtenstein and Austria the unusual distinction of having won more medals in the Winter Games than in the Summer Olympics.

Cross-country skiier Marit Bjørgen won 15 medals and 8 gold medals while biathlete Ole Einar Bjørndalen won 13 medals with 8 golds, followed by cross-country skier Bjørn Dæhlie with 12 medals and 8 gold medals. Bjørgen’s 15 medals were an absolute Winter Olympic record (through 2018), while the 8 golds won by all three was also a record through 2018. Norway has twice hosted the Olympic Winter Games, in 1952 in Oslo and in 1994 in Lillehammer.
