Anette Norberg (born 12 November 1966) is a retired Swedish curler from Härnösand.

She and her team were the Olympic women's curling champions from 2006 to 2010, having won the 2010 Women's Curling tournament in Vancouver. She led her team to victory for gold over Cheryl Bernard's Canadian team in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver becoming the first skip in the history of curling to successfully defend an Olympic title after previously winning the 2006 Women's Curling tournament in Turin over Mirjam Ott's Swiss team.

Career[edit]

Norberg started to curl at the age of ten.[1]

Since her debut on the international circuit, Norberg has won seven European Curling Championships (1988, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2007) and three World Curling Championships (2005, 2006 and 2011). She also won silver medal at the 2001 Ford World Curling Championship and bronze medals in 1988, 1989, 1991 and 2003 World Championships. Except when she played at third for Elisabeth Högström in the team that won the 1988 European Championship, Norberg has always played the position of skip. After the retirement of her Olympic team, she put together a new team, with Cecilia Östlund, Sara Carlsson, and Liselotta Lennartsson. Norberg announced her decision to retire in April of 2013.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Apart from curling, Norberg was chief actuary at Nordea, and led a division at Folksam.[3] She is currently a consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers.[1]

Norberg holds a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics. She has one daughter, Therese, and one son, singer Tobias Westman.[4][5] In September 2014, Norberg revealed that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, shortly after she retired. She has since completed treatment, which included chemotherapy and surgery to remove the tumor.[1]

Norberg appeared as a contestant in Let's Dance 2013.
