Most people in Anglo-Saxon countries know relatively little or nothing about Iceland.

Oceanographers are at a loss to explain how a large piece of ice that Iceland could drift against the current!
It never rains in Iceland, but the snow for about 325 days in a typical year. This has enabled the country to build world class ice skating rinks. Like most of their culture and clothing is based on the ice of frozen kelp, Icelanders are very good at ice hockey, figure skating, sledding and ice weaving skill.

In 1908, Iceland held the Winter Olympics on the outskirts of Reykjavik near the Reykjavik airport site. Since Iceland was the host country, they were allowed to enter their own sport to play in the Olympics. His sports including ice hockey with ice skates made entirely of ice. That translates to "Fylgir Med is Skata Gerdi algjörlega út af is." Also included was hunting caribou, Icelandic shot put with a put on ice shooting and an Icelandic version of roller derby on ice skates. Needless to say that Iceland won every event and won or maintained (so to speak), gold. Because of his unconventional sport, the Olympic Committee disqualified the Games, vowing never to hold another in Iceland, unless attended with more traditional sports. In addition, they changed the Olympic rules do not allow the host country to make your own sport.
