Oslo – Bislet

Hånden i været alle som aldri har hørt om Bislet Stadion? Nei, det ble antagelig ikke mange? Selv var jeg der allerede under Olympiaden i 1952!  Selvsagt ikke som aktiv, men jeg var flink til å både spise og selge pølser! 🙂 Ellers var jeg ofte på Bislet bad for aktiv svømme-trening ogt noe senere i livet fikk jeg også min opplæring som amatør-dykker på samme sted. Å rusle rundt med et kamera vekket nå mange minner! Og her er noen av dem!
Hand in the air, everyone who has never heard of Bislet Stadium? No, there were probably not many? I myself was already here during the Olympics in 1952! Of course, not as active, but I was pretty adept at both eating and selling ‘hot dogs’! 🙂 Otherwise, I was often at Bislet public bath for active swimming training, and somewhat later in life, I also received my training as an amateur diver at the same place. Strolling around with a camera now evoked many memories! And here are some of my pictures!

‘Bislet’ er ikke særlig stor om man sammenligner med idretts-stadioner ellers rundt i verden. ‘Nye Bislet har – ved større idretts-arrangementer plass til 15 400 mennesker, men du verden så mange verdensrekorder som har sett dagens lys her, både innen fri-idrett, men ikke minst innen skøyteløp!

The Bislet Stadium is – compared globally – not a large stadium! As athletic championships go, the stadium may seat 15 400 people! (That’s it!) But there is nearly no limit to the number of world records that have been obtained here both within summer athletics, but especially skating competitions in winter!
Trikken kommer via Therese gt. og passerer Bislet stadion i en avstand av bare 30 meter!
The local trams arrive through the Therese street and pass the stadium only 100 feet away!
Tvers over Bislet rundkjøring –
Across the Bislet ’round-about’ –
Her ser vi også tidligere nevnte ‘Bislet Bad’.  Jeg er litt mer usikker på om det fortsatt bades her, men jeg bor altså ikke lenger i Oslo!

Here we may see the earlier mentioned ‘Bislet Bath’, I am, however, more than uncertain whether it is still possible to take a swim here, but I no longer live in Oslo! 🙂
Men du verden hvor heldig jeg var med tidspunktet! Bakdøren til Bislet var åpen for nødvendig vedlikehold og jeg smatt innenfor med risiko for å bli innelåst 🙂 , men i løpet
av 30 sekunder hadde jeg sikret meg dette bildet slik at der kunne få en ide om hva som skjuler seg på innsiden! Den blå seksjonen midt i bildet er vanngraven som benyttes
ved hekkeløp!

I was in luck with my timing. The backdoor to the arena was opened to let maintenance people inside and with the risk of being locked up, I slipped inside for 30 sec. to take this picture. The blue section is a ‘water grave’ used in obstacle running.
Her er vi på baksiden av Bislet stadion og ser inn i Sofiesgt. og – rett frem – inn Collettsgt.
Selve stadionen ligger nå til venstre for fortauet (og utenfor bildet).

Here we are at the back of the stadium, looking into the street: Sofiesgt. (left) or straight into the Collettsgt.(Right)  The Bislet Stadium itself is now located to the left of the footwalk and outside of my picture!

  1. Sometimes we do forget…that once we were really active athletes/swimmers/climbers/etc. Memories 🙂

      Well, I haven’t really forgotten, but I have not seen these places in a very long time!
      But – when the ‘corona’ first arrived, we were told to test if we could hold our breath for 10 seconds without coughing, remember? But I tried, and I had no problems holding my breath for 2,5 minutes – even at my age! Which reminded me that you may train anything – also lungs! 🙂
