Bjørn Dæhlie, the crimson cross-country king
Dæhlie is a cultural icon in his native Norway, which isn't a surprise considering he tallied up 12 Olympic medals (eight gold) and became a very successful businessman in real estate and fashion. But back in Albertville in ’92, he was a redheaded youngster who took no time at all to dominate the games alongside his fellow countryman Vegard Ulvang. He also has the studly side-grin of Robert Redford. And that matters too.
