I am not sure what it is with me and Aquarius people at this time of the year. But I have to write this post. I fell in love with this guy and I have to tell you all about it. Did you watch the 2014 Winter Olympic Games? I did and I was very fond of it! With its Hot. Cool. Yours motto and with 88 nations participating, 2,873 athletes I do believe this was a major world event. It could teach marketing, organization, preparation and a lot of determination.  Respect for all the athletes that participated! This is post is about one specific, extraordinary athlete.

Pursue your sport. Grit your teeth and get the best out of yourself. Deal with disappointments and celebrate successes. Just for you alone.” (odlo.com, 01 Jan 2013)

He took up sport at age 10 and he probably loved it very much as the quote above says it all. In 1993, at the age of 19, became the first biathlete ever to win a grand slam by winning all 3 gold medals on the Junior Biathlon World Championships. He won his first Olympic gold medal in the 10km sprint at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano. At the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City he became the first biathlete to win 4 gold medals at a single Game.

He had become the oldest winter Olympic gold medalist in an individual event, when he won the 10km sprint in Sochi, this year and that was an amazing thing to watch. He was passion, power and focus. All in one. In that moment, I wondered: “What is the Sun Sign of this Man?”

Well… he is Aquarius. He is an Aquarius Man. With his positive outlook on life and a true commitment towards any goal, the Aquarius Man is a Winner.

Ole Einar Bjørndalen is known as “The King of Biathlon” and he is now the most medaled Olympian in the history of the Winter Games, with 13 medals. He has his own statue, sculpted by Kirsten Kokkin. He loves cars, rock climbing and motorcycles… and of course listening to Dire Straits.

If there’s anybody who can look into the future and know he can make things better, then an Aquarius man is the one.
