Cross-country skiing Olympic champion has butterflies in her stomach.

Like in a fairy tale: Olympic champion gets married in the snow

For years she shaped the winter sports scene with her incredible successes. Now an Olympic champion got married in a fairytale way.

She celebrated her greatest successes in the snow. And in the snow there was now an absolute private highlight for Therese Johaug. The cross-country skiing icon married her long-time boyfriend Nils Jakob Hoff on New Year's Eve. “Now you’re finally mine,” Johaug wrote with a wink on social media.


The strange thing about the whole thing: On New Year's Eve 2021, Johaug von Hoff, who is a gifted rower, received the marriage proposal. Exactly two years later to the day, the two said yes. And this couldn't have been more romantic. The wedding location, Johaug's birthplace Røros, was transformed into a winter dream landscape due to the heavy snowfall. The newlywed couple were taken away by a sleigh carriage.


Johaug is one of the most successful cross-country skiers in history. She won Olympic gold four times and was crowned world champion 14 times. She retired from professional sports in March 2022 and gave birth to a girl in May 2023. With the wedding, family happiness is now perfect.
