Letter to the editor: Norway’s Summer Games game

Norway’s Summer Games game

Received March 1

I’ve read the letter regarding Norway medal count several times and am not sure exactly what the author is trying to say. Is there an excuse in there as to why the small country of Norway not only beats the USA but every other country in the world? Not really sure what the Biblical reference has to do with it either.

I’m wondering how Norway or any other ‘northern European’ nations compete in the Summer Games. Is there an MLB or NBA or NFL or collegiate programs in these sports in Norway? Maybe the USA does not win the Winter Olympics because there are so many more sports in this country for our youth to compete in and enjoy. Please enlighten me here.
