Olav (born May 3, 1873â€”He was a noted ski-runner in his youth and won many prizes. He once won the Kings Cup at Holmenkollen, Christiana. Olav was with Roald Amundson on his South Pole expedition. They left Norway in Jun 1910 and arrived at the pole December 16, 1911. They camped there 3 days and left a cabin on the spot with a Norse flag flying on it. Amundson left a letter there addressed to King Haakon. This letter was found in Scottâ€™s pocket and brought to Norway. The explorer Scott died on the expedition. When Olav Bjaaland was married, Roald Amundson presented him with a fruit bowl of hammered silver. He had a â€œSkifabrikâ€ for a time but by 1923 had sold it to his brother Sommond. In 1923 Olav was living on a farm owned by his wife.
Sommond (the only brother of Olav. In 1923 was the owner of the ski-factory formerly owned by his brother Olav.)
Hope this helps,
