Skier blames porn for lousy performance

New, comments

Norway's Odd-Bjoern Hjelmeset won a silver medal as part of the men's 4x10 cross-country relay, but that's mainly because teammate Petter Northug skated an insane last leg that pulled his team from sixth to second.

Via Sports Illustrated, we learn that Hjelmeset blames too much porn for his lousy effort. From the Vancouver 2010 quote sheet:

My name is Odd-Bjoern Hjelmeset. I skied the second lap and I f----- up today. I think I have seen too much porn in the last 14 days. I have the room next to Petter Northhug and every day there is noise in there. So I think that is the reason I f----- up. By the way, Tiger Woods is a really good man.
