MOEN Bells have cheered athletes at the Olympic Winter Games since Lillehammer in 1994, but enjoy a much longer legacy.
The first MOEN Bells were produced in 1922, by Tobias Moen in the picturesque little town of Moi, on the west coast of Norway. The bells are cut from iron sheets, formed and coated with brass recycled from spent ammunition cartridges from Norwegian military practice ranges. From bullets to bells!
Bells are a popular tradition at European sporting events where their distinctive cheerful clamor applauds athletes. The bells have come a long way from their original use–helping farmers find animals lost in mountain pastures.
