Biathlon family just lost one of the legends. I was cheering this legend in TV as a kid. Then I had an opportunity to compete with Halvard for few seasons in World Cup and he also was there when I made it to very top and took my only individual WC victory on Holmenkollen in Mass Start 2008. What a pleasure to share this moment with such a great spirit as he was also on the podium! I'll remember his kind smile which never left biathlon family even after he retired as an athlete. He stayed within our circus as an expert commentator for TV. You were one of the greatest and that's how you will be remembered. Rest in peace Halvard and shall your family find enough strength and love to move over hard times. 😥
Beside being healthy and having awesome and healthy family which is the greatest success in life I also achieved some results which are worth mention in sport I love.
