Siberian Basket

September 26, 2010

The Norwegian team – with help from the almost 2 meter tall team captain Peter Heine – got their rest day workout by playing basketball against the English team. A great way to prepare England-Norway Chess Olympiad match tomorrow! The Brits were assisted by two Swedes, but to no avail. I think we won convincingly 14-4 in the end.

It’s cold outside! Yours truly is presenting this year’s Siberia sportswear.

Pre-match negotiations.

Norway showing aggressive intentions. Top point scorer Magnus with the ball.

Will it go in, or bounce back? That’s the question everyone’s asking themselves.

I’m showing off my amazing shooting technique – at least I think this is what you’re supposed to do. Too bad I missed by a mile!
