Norwegian names child after Domracheva

Norwegian biathlon expert Ole Kristian Stoltenberg explained why he named his daughter in honor of Daria Domracheva.

"Domracheva is like a Bolshoi Theater ballet dancer, only on skis."

"I always admired her movement technique. She "hovers" gracefully and easily. It feels like she does not touch snow. When our girl was born on September 15th, I did not doubt for a minute how to name her," Stoltenberg said.

"I'm surprised and glad that the Stoltenbergs called their daughter in my honor. In Greek, "Daria" means "the winner," and I hope that the girl will be the winner in all life situations," said Daria Domracheva, and with pleasure showed a photograph of the Stoltenberg daughter.
