At the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea in 2018, Norway earned 39 total medals setting a record for the Winter Games. Many stories were written in the US press about how Norway became so successful.
In this podcast I discuss Norwegian sports culture with Stephen Seiler, PhD. Stephen is an American sport scientist who has lived in Norway for over 20 years. He offers his perspective on how Norway goes about developing athletes, the truth about keeping score in youth sports, funding and team culture. Since Stephen is very knowledgeable about sports in the US and Norway, he can offer a great perspective on the differences.
