Norway’s high-flyer Granerud is a weird bird

Halvor Egner Granerud is currently the leader in the Four Hills Tournament.

At the opening event in Oberstdorf he flew away: Halvor Egner Granerud turned up the heat just in time for the Four Hills Tournament. The 26-year-old Norwegian is also one of the big favorites in the New Year’s competition on Sunday in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

But the man from Oslo doesn’t just cause a stir when he’s successful. He’s always been remarkable. He was in international focus for the first time at the age of 16 – due to a little YouTube film. In the sequences, which a colleague filmed with a helmet camera, Granerud can be seen jumping stark naked from Midstubakken on Holmenkollen. He then sold the video, which unsurprisingly went through the roof. A few years later, he said he might have asked for more money for the rights had he known the attention his youthful escapade was generating.
