Biography

Thorleif HAUG

Thorleif Haug was the winner of all three Nordic skiing events (18 km, 50 km and Nordic combination) at the 1st Olympic Winter Games in 1924, and the 29-year-old Norwegian was considered the star of the Games. Although his feat has been equaled on many occasions, no Nordic skier has yet succeeded in winning more than three gold medals at one Games. In 1924, he was also awarded the bronze-medal in the ski jump but 50 years later it was discovered that the scores had been incorrectly calculated and that Anders Haugen (USA) had finished third, with Haug in fourth place. Haug's daughter later presented her father's bronze medal to the rightful owner.
