And when it comes to skiing, Norway is finding someone or something to blame for its horrendous performance. Considering Norway holds the most cross-country medals and has the biggest budget, how has it not medaled so far in the relays? Well, according to some, it's a waxing conspiracy! The skiers are pointing to a bad wax job as the reason they can't deal with warmer snow. But head technician Knut Nystad believes certain wax manufacturers are holding out on the Norwegians, saying, "I wish I had the best products, preferably the stuff the Swedes have. There are rumors that certain producers favor certain countries. We've heard that rumor from two distributors."
