Floop For Lars Berger
Biathlon skier Lars Berger was supposed to make the Norwegian Olympic team in cross country skiing by doing well in Nove Mesto. That didn’t work at all. He ended up in 51st place.

Berger competed successfully in the 2005 Cross country Worlds in Oberstdorf, Germany where he was 4th in the 15-kilometer freestyle and skied the third leg on Norway’s gold medal relay team. But Berger was 3 minutes and 9 seconds behind the winner, Vincent Vittoz of France on Saturday and needs to look for another opportunity if he wants to make the cross country team.
