The first day in the Olympics were a good day for Norway, with two silver medals and two bronze medals. However, the predictions were two gold medals, one silver and one bronze on the first day.
The medalists were:
Ole Einar Bjørndalen, silver (biathlon men, 20K individual)
Halvard Hanevold, bronze (biathlon men, 20K individual)
Magnus Moan, bronze (nordic combined)
Kari Traa, silver (freestyle women, moguls)
Petter Tande should also be mentioned, as he was only a few centimetres away from snatching Magnus Moan's bronze medal.
