CHEERING ON LINE JAHR IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES

There has been a roller coaster of emotions these last couple of weeks in our home, probably in my soon to be family-in-law home as well and not to mention the ski jumper herself, Line Jahr. I’ve been so happy and so proud of my fiances twin sister whom I’ve gotten to know these past two years. Line and her boyfriend Fredrik is probably the two people I’ve got to know best amongst the siblings in his family. To experience that she got to jump in this years Olympic Games in Sochi has been a memory I’ll probably never forget. I’m proud but I dare say that my fiance (and his family), Tomas must have been prouder. This is a historic moment as it is the first time the Olympic Winter Games has their own competition with women ski jumping. That is a BIG DEAL.

Mette is the mother and she has been one of the few people who has helped  making women’s ski jumping in Norway a reality. She started with the project over 10 years ago to let girls/women be allowed to compete in ski jumping, and look how far it has come! Well done Mette!
