    Dag siden, is their website in English. It was a great video and it was amazing seeing the Telemark Bn and their standards. We always watch the Americans and the Brits but after watching this video i must conclude, Norwegian Soldiers are tough And their training seems quite demanding which makes me even more interested in getting to know about them. This video about Telemark Bn was different, very interesting and informative. It makes us more curious about tactics and standards of Norwegian Army. Respects and Love from Pakistan 🇵🇰

    Nearly all of these guys have sandy-blonde, almost reddish hair, but when Americans think of red-heads, they think scottish or irish. It's funny because, knowing history, I know those "wikings" are why the scotts and irish have a lot of red hair ;) My eldest son has similar sandy-blonde hair.

      @Tenk89 Scandinavian close enough, at least the sentiment was correct unlike the information. My bad, still the best. He'd probably punch me if he was alive calling him a Norwegian, then again that would've been out of character. Thanks for letting me know as I would have had him in my head as Norwegian for years to come. What's that saying from the Tao te ching? To ask is a moment's shame, not to ask & remain ignorant is a lifelong shame. Always learning.........

    Glad they are our allies. These guys look like soldiers. US military has a lot of elite units but the rank and file service member is not up to par when compared to other countries. I live near an Army base in NYC area. I see these people out on runs. It’s pathetic. Overweight black women walking not running. Men who look like they’re gonna pass out.

    oh no! Magnus is bench-pressing again :-P amazing job all around by everyone! with the deadlift, you could bring your feet closer in or maybe try sumo-deadlift. your back could be a bit straighter and you were quite rough pulling it off the ground, but you still did a good job :-)

      He had bad form on everything else too. Chin barely got above the bar, if at all on most of the reps while Magnus had it way above the bar. On the bench his feet were way too far back. And he was using so much momentum on the upside down sit ups he was about to knock over the machine, and still lost. So bad form on everything, but the most dangerous is the deadlift, he needs to fix that.
