Has anyone really read that translation at the official Norway Royal Family site? That's a bit embrassing IMO for something translated so badly to be part of the Official site.

And Haakon? Before you try something in front of the cameras, you really need to practice somewhere. His form was pretty bad I'm sorry to say.

Thanks iceflower for the links

Here is a long video from the Curling Hall

Imo he did quite well!

@Tiggersk8 The translation from the NRF website is not the official one but it has been done with Google Translator, hence the "bad" translation.
