Team Kjemperud – HoidalenEdit

Kjemperud won the bronze medal in the men's beach team competition at the 2001 Beach Volleyball World Championships in Klagenfurt, Austria, partnering Vegard Høidalen. Kjemperud/Høidalen teamed up in 1995, and split up in 2004. They did not spend much time together outside practice and matches, and the team was known for being temperamental on court.[1] Kjemperud/Høidalen represented Norway at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, and the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, and both times they ended up in 9th place. Kjemperud teamed up with Hoidalen again in 2008.

Kjemperud and Skarlund represented Norway at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. The team split up after the Olympics, where they ended up in 19th place.
