NorwayOlympics's Achievements


Silver (4/16)



  1. Some good news from Oslo, Norway. In the past weeks both our minister of Culture, Thorild Widvey and her newly appointed secretary have publicly announced their support for the bid and an Oslo Olympics in 2022. Ministre of Culture, Thorhild Widvey: http://www.vg.no/sport/ol-2022/widvey-staar-fram-som-ol-entusiast/a/10123413/ "A huge part of the norwegian volunteer foundation is still based on the enthusiasm from Olympic winter games at Lillehammer in 1994. In orther to maintain a constant flow of volunteers we need a large project in order to mobilize a new generation of volunteers. The Olympics will need 20 000 - 25 000 volunteers. This could create a new wave which is important since the volunteers builds and holds up the norwegian society." Her secretary, Bjørgulv Vinje Borgundvaag http://www.idrett.no/nyheter/Sider/OL-i-Norge-i-Tjue-Tjue-To.aspx He has written a song in favour of the Olympics.
  2. Oslo plans to build to refurbish the central railway station and build a new bus terminal over the tracks. To be completed in between 2017-2019 New main bus terminal
  3. Very solid application file. Love the layout and the fact that this bid has huge public support in Poland. As a citizen of Oslo I of course want the games to take place in Norway, but as a half pole (my mother is polish) I really hope that Krakow takes this if Oslo backs out from the race..
  4. The bid video is back! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=226933867508357&set=vb.130024730532605&type=2&theater
