Background

He was a promising hammer thrower, and at 16 he had a personal record at 52.50 meters. He also did boxing and American football, playing for the local team Arendal Wildcats for several years. He was taken out to participate on the Norwegian National American football team in the 90's. As a junior in 1994 he was a Norwegian team-champion in judo. He left Norway to attend on University of Texas at El Paso, Texas, and extended his hammer throw to over 60 meters, and had 2000 Summer Olympics as goal. He went back to Norway and was working as a ship mechanic, but decided to give US another try, this time as a martial artist.
