Coming home from tai chi class, I heard an article on MPR - The World about Sweden/Norway rivalry during the winter games. (Norway has more Winter medals than any other country.)

Apparently it started when a Swedish commentator said that Norway had more psychologists than medals at the Olympics this year (4).

Then a Norwegian athlete beat out the Swedish favorite to win a gold.

A Swede interviewed about the friendly rivalry said that it was probably an inferiority complex since Sweden has global brands like Volvo and Ikea and Norway just has fish... and great winter athletes.
