He was the hero of the 2017-2018 Olympic cross-country season: at age 21, Johannes Klaebo won three gold medals at PyeongChang 2018 to tie with French biathlete Martin Fourcade for the most gold medals won at the Games. The youngest Olympic champion in his sport, he also became, at the end of the season, the youngest winner of the big FIS Crystal Globe. Norway has a new star!
Johannes Høsflot Klaebo told his story to the FIS after winning his first Crystal Globe (in the sprint) at the end of the 2016-2017 season, his first on the World Cup circuit, during which he continued to compete at the junior level. "I’m a 20-year old guy from Trondheim. I still live with my younger brother, sister and my parents. My granddad gave me my first pair of skis for Christmas when I was two. Apparently, I was skiing in our living room the whole day. My mum and dad love cross-country skiing, and when we were kids we used to ski a lot together. When I was a kid we spent many hours skiing and jumping. But what I loved most was football. I spent virtually all my time on the pitch and I was sure I would become a footballer."
