at Lillehammer in 1994. Bjørg Eva Jensen on the left stamp won the gold medal in 3000 m speed skating at Lake
Placid in 1980. The next stamp shows the Norwegian women team who won the gold medal in
4x5 km skiing cross-country relay in Sarajevo in 1984. The women on the team are Berit
Aunli, Brit Pettersen, Inger Helene Nybråten and Anne Jahren.
