Thoralf StrÃ¸mstad was a consistent allrounder in skiing events. In the period 1918-24 he was ten times among the top six in 50 km or Nordic Combined at Holmenkollen, and in 1916 he won the jumping event in Nordic combined. StrÃ¸mstad was Norwegian Champion in 1919, and also won a national championship title in 30 km cross-country in 1922.
Almost 40 years after the 1924 Games, StrÃ¸mstad contacted Norwegian ski historian Jacob Vaage, claiming that the points from the ski jumping event for [Thorleif Haug] had been miscalculated, and the bronze medal should go to [Anders Haugen] from USA. In 1974 the IOC decided to award Haugen the bronze, and the medal was given to Haugen by Haug's daughter in a ceremony in Oslo with StrÃ¸mstad present.
