Tom Erik Oxholm, born in Larvik, started his international career by winning a bronze medal in the 1978 World Junior Championships, and this was only the first of a series of bronze medals for Oxholm. In 1980, his first senior year, he won two Olympic bronze medals (5,000 m and 10,000 m) in addition to bronze medals at both the European and World Championships. He was considered to be a man of the future, but he never again reached the level of his 1980 season.
