THE MOST LONG-AWAITED MEDAL

On February 4, 1924, after jump of Anders Haugen — captain of the US national team, judges made an arithmetical mistake while calculating points. As a result, the athlete did not take the deserved third place but took the fourth place. The “Bronze” was awarded to Norwegian skier — Thorlief Haug. In 1974 during research of the Olympics film archive by Jacob Vaage — Norwegian journalist, judges’ mistake was proved. After 50 years of victory, Thorlief Haug’s daughter solemnly awarded the bronze to the 83-year-old Anders Hauge in Oslo.
