DailyBeast: Royal Olympians

King Olav V and King Harald V of Norway

As the crown prince of Norway, the future King Olav V won a gold medal at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam in the 6 meter sailing class. Nearly 30 years later, he ascended the throne and evidently passed on the Olympic gene to his son, Harald, who represented his country in yachting at the 1964, 1968, and 1972 Olympics. But three years after he became king, Harald V, had perhaps his greatest Olympic moment—when he opened the 1994 Winter Games in Lillehammer, Norway.
