in reply to If I were to compete in an Olympic event, it would be:

Having imported myself into Norway, I feel obliged to select one of the national sports here. Since I'm not a great shooter, the Nordic Combined is out of my league. That means I'd settle for cross-country skiing.

Being Dutch by birth, I'd have to select speed skating, but I haven't done that in at least 10 years. Pity, because I really liked it.

By the way, we haven't had nearly enough snow here this year to go skiing. I'm terribly disappointed about this winter!

And yes, I am a winter person. Even during the summer I prefer to go into the mountains, looking for snow and ice. I do like the sun, but only on the rocks :)

      Feh. Thanks for setting me straight on the english terms. I think I prefer skiskyting over biathlon. Ski-shooting sounds much funnier :)
