How very happy we are to have Hallvard Flatland back in “good form”! How very happy we are to have the entire Norwegian Team participating, all in “good form”!! Flatlands were accompanied by their daughter Bettina. Daughter Katarina had to cancel at the last moment.
With Hallvard and Anne-Lise, in the pic above, are Olav Hansson and wife Ellen. Olav is a legend in Norway…. However, not in the game of shuffleboard, but as a ski jumper. No less than 11 times he was on the podium in World Cup-competitions. But forever he will remember when he became world champion in 1982. Olav also was a very good soccer-player, and showed his talent for almost any sport when he won the first Norwegian championship in shuffleboard in 2006.
Hallvard built the first shuffleboard-court in Norway in 2005, and is the president of the National Shuffleboard Association.
