And the second part of the day was spent in ... the Håkons Hall! Not so many Norwegian people, at least at the beginning:
First game: France-Nederlands (23-21) ! Defense:
Hungary - Ukraine (26-25):
... hum ... attack ... ?
And last but not least, Norway-Sweden !!!
Many supporters, and among them: His Majesty King Harald ! (about 10 rows above us)
Start of the game:
And the final result was a Norwegian defeat: 19-24. The Norwegian team was missing some of her key players, due to a stomach virus, but recognized some errors anyway. Losing in front of the King, against those #%#&# Swedish was of course a huge loss for the whole country, and there were even rumors about some psychological help proposed to the players ;-)
Norway promised to kick Swedish asses back in finals -> New strategies ?:
Let's just wait and see ...
Anyway: HEIA NORGE !
