One particularly outstanding athlete at these world championships was Norway’s Johannes Thingnes Bø. The 29-year-old broke numerous records, and, among other successes, he was the first male athlete to win seven medals at the World Championships. Every single one of his starts resulted in a medal. When it comes purely to the skiing, he is simply unbeatable. Johannes Thingnes Bø is taking five golds, and one each of silver and bronze home with him, yet he remains humble, explaining, “You have to be good to haul in seven medals, I’m not going to downplay that, but Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt are in a whole other league.” Countryman and sibling Tarjei Bø took second in the Sprint for what was tagged the “Bødium”, then stood on the podium again with his brother with silver in the Relay.
