Career Highlights:

It appeared Klemetsen’s best years in Nordic combined were behind him, but he is enjoying a renaissance and enters the Sochi Games as one of the top contenders to medal. Klemetsen appeared in his only Olympics in 2006, finishing 20th in the normal hill and 40th in the sprint. He was a member of Norway’s bronze medal relay teams in the normal hill and large hill at the 2011 world championships, and won a silver in the normal hill relay at the 2013 worlds. He finished 10th in the 2012 World Cup standings followed by a 17th-place finish this past year. Klemetsen’s biggest strength is his jumping ability, and he’s been excelling on the hill in several of the events leading up to the Olympics. He still has just one World Cup victory to his name, that coming in 2011, but appears to be hitting his stride at the right time.
