We where of course there to support our countries, we supported France with our nice flags !
There was a lot of people every where ! it was amazing! On Saturday there was 100 000 persons around the tracks and on Sunday even a little bit more.
Some of us had chosen a lavo (tipi) to sleep in, others in tents, and few other decided to sleep in on the snow.
We are now real Norwegians, most of us ate sausages put on a stick, other made pasta by melting snow.
And as desert bananas with chocolate :)
We heard in the forest a lot of music, fireworks, and songs of drunken people, it was like if you camp at a festival.
When the athletes came around, we went to the tracks to support them! the French team was very good until the 30km, all the time in the first places, but after, they where I think a little bit tired, and finished around the 20th places...
On the following video you can see how many people are there, and this is not the end stadium where most of the supporters are, it's just one place around the track where there was a big screen! All around the 10km tracks there where persons supporting the skiers!
"I have never seen as many flags of a country" told me one Erasmus student, I agreed, it was amazing, people in red, with red flags, and little flags on their clothes (hats) and also painted on their faces! it was amazing !!
On this video you can see the 30km lady with in first place Marit Bjoergen, she finished 2nd after Johaug Therese another Norwegian.
On this video (under) you can see the view we had from our nice place on sunday for the 5km men. (it really looks like the when I went in France to Support the Tour de France.
And on the last video you can see the man race, the skiers with a blue and white (spider) combination are the French team!
