According to the Canadian Press on Tuesday, curler Eigil Ramsfjell of Norway was inducted into the World Curling Federation Hall of Fame.

Ramsfjell, who won a bronze medal at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, won a gold medal for Norway when curling was a demonstration sport at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary.

In the gold medal game at Calgary's Max Bell Arena, Norway defeated Switzerland 10-2. Ramsfjell also won three World Curling Championships--1979 in Bern, 1984 in Duluth, Minnesota and in 1988 in Lausanne.

Ramsfjell was inducted with Canadian curling legend Randy Ferbey of Edmonton, Alberta, who skipped Canada to three World Championship victories and five Brier championships including the 2002 Nokia Brier in Calgary, and Patrick Huerlimann of Switzerland, who skipped his country to the very first gold medal in men's curling competition at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano.
