The camp location was Numedal folkehögskole just north of Kongsberg, Norway. A beautiful place with all the facilities in one place. A big thanks to the school for having us this week.

The camp started on tuesday when all the athletes from Denmark, Sweden and Norway arrived. In the evening an opening ceremony was held. After that a few games to get to know each other. A nice lasagne for dinner ended the first day of the camp.

Wednesday and friday were big training days when every athlete did three sessions; swimming, bike riding and running. They were divided into three training groups after their age. A big challenge for the athletes were to get coaching instructions in norwegian, danish or swedish. 

In the Nordic TRI camp concept thursday is ment to be a day with other activities. This time the day was filled with canoying, climbing, gymnastics, pendulum jumping and one training session in the swimming pool. These triathletes were of the braver kind since they all jumped from the bridge. Impressing!

Pendulum jump

Only one session on saturday, a triathlon relay. In teams of four everyone swam 300 metres each. And after a short break the relay continued with a 7k ride followed by a 2k run. The triathletes gave everyting they had, had fun and cheered on each other. A great session!

In the afternoon the closing ceremony took place, the ambassadors introduced next years camp which will be held in Glamsbjerg Denmark between the 26th of june to 1th of july. A barbeque dinner followed before the evening continued with volleyball, soccer or a swim in the river.

On sunday everyone began their travel home with tired legs and great memories from the week. A big thanks to the triathlon federations, the coaches and of course all the participants.

We hope to see you in Glamsbjerg, Denmark 2017! Remember the date 26th june - 1th of july. Check out the venue at: https://www.glamsdalen.dk/
