Sport: “Got in with all my heart, hoping to achieve the dream of the Olympics. It didn’t work this time,” writes Thoresen on his Instagram account.

Discovery mentioned the matter first. In the 67-kilogram class, there is only one quota place for Norway, and Håvard Jørgensen looks set to get the chance in the last Olympic qualification in Turkish Istanbul in May. National team manager Pål-Eirik Gundersen has not responded to NTB’s inquiry.

Jørgensen took EC bronze last year.

27-year-old Thoresen won EC gold in 2020. In recent years, he has become a well-known figure with his participation in the NRK series “Head in Klemme”.
