One of the highlights of the week was the Strawberry Party in the City Hall to which the media were invited.

In the normal way the Diamond League programme was preceded by a normal of national events. In an abnormal way one of the events was the Junior Norwegian Snowball Championship. Yes, children (11-13 years old) throw snowballs and measure the distance to where they land.
