Marte Olsbu’s Net Worth Includes 2 Olympic Medals
After just turning 27 in December, biathlete Marte Olsbu headed to Pyeongchang for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, her first Olympic games, ever in her career as an athlete. She competed in 6 events: Women’s 15k Individual (placing 71st), Women’s 7.5k Sprint (winning silver), Women’s 10k Pursuit (placing 4th), Women’s 12.5k Mass Start (placing 8), Women’s 4x6k Relay (placing 4) and the 2x6k Women + 2×7.5k Men Mixed Relay (winning silver). In addition to the silver medals won in Pyeongchang, she also has a Relay Gold and a Mixed Relay Bronze in the 2016 World Championships in Oslo. Her total net worth of awards now includes 2 silver Olympic medals, one gold World Championship medal and one bronze World Championship medal. There is no word yet on her plan for 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics run, but it is likely she will be in the next World Cup season and that she’ll participate in the World Championships. Marte Olsbu’s financial net worth is currently unknown but after the 2018 Winter Olympics she seems to be doing rather well financially.
She Has Skied Her Whole Life
Marte Olsbu represents Froland, Norway which is located in Aust-Agder county and sits on the Southeast coast of Norway. Skiing in Norway seems to be a way of life more than a sport because of the weather and the cold, snowy climate. In the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, Norway took home a record 39 medals, more than any other nation in the history of the games, and over twice as many as the US. The above photo shows the Norwegian medalist skiing at a young age which is probably something children in Norway are taught to do, most likely before they can even walk. Although she has skied since a very young age, she didn’t break out into the world of professional skiing until 2013, when she debuted in the World Cup season that year through 2014. Since then, she has been a mainstay of Norwegian skiing, eventually bringing her to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. When she is not traveling for her skiing, she remains in Froland, where she is currently planning her 2018 wedding.
The Biathlete Has a Strong Social Following
At 27 years old, it makes sense that she would be very active on social media and especially for athletes, it is a great way to gain exposure and connect with your fans. It’s not enough to just be an athlete anymore because there is so much competition for exposure and sponsors, which all have an impact in an athlete’s success. Marte has over 12k followers on her Instagram but does not seem to have a Twitter account. The Norwegian medalist and World Cup athlete posted a photo of her holding her two silver medals from Pyeongchang on March 25 thanking all of her fans for their support.
