You couldn't even google what the population of Norway is before posting and looking silly? It's clear you are misinterpreting what they are representing in that figure, as there are over 5 million people living there.
If Magnus Carlsen can get a million of them to watch chess, I'm not surprised that Jakob can get a few more to watch a track event:
You didn't read what I wrote. Nor do you understand tv ratings. I wrote that 70% of Norwegians watching TV tuned in. I"m well aware that there are 5 million people in Norway.
I said 70% of the people watching tv were watching them. It's called a ratings share.
From Wikipedia, for the US, Nielsen may report a show as receiving a 4.4/8 during its broadcast; this would mean that out of all television-equipped households (that is to say homes with a TV set, not total number of people), 4.4% were tuned in to that program, while among those households watching TV at the time 8% of them watched."
What I gave you was the second number.
And I didn't make up that number. It came from a newspaper article that I clearly cited.
I may be late to the party here, but i have been watching the 2 year docu / reality show following Team Ingeb. its increible. Starts with Jakob 12 or so. Its addictive. If you haven't already watched all of it, i highly recommend.
