Morten is one of the absolute legends of the sport and the most senior competitor in the circus. He started dødsing in Frognerbadet in 1972 which puts him in his 47th active year as a døser! He was part of Bruno Hovden’s crew (Bruno to the left in the BW photo), the inventor of the døds as we know it. They travelled the country to find big and spectacular spots for dødsing and the highest they found was 15 meters in Kragerø.
