Many of us ask the question, why? How could life take such a hero…a man who decided to lift his entire country upon his own shoulders; kindling their pride and honor on the darkest of days. Then in the blink of an eye…gone. He will never be forgotten.
Two courageous young men, Norwegians themselves–proud, yet sad…and still in disbelief, took some time just to express their own feelings, in their own words about the fallen Viking, Alexander Dale Oen.
SwimSwam would like to wish our most sincere condolences to all the friends, family and fans of Alex and especially thank these two incredible young men for sharing some thoughts with us on a very sad day.
Thank you Sebastian Wigstrom and Eirik Ravnan.
