Many important buildings were put up in connection with the Games: The student town at Sogn, the staff housing at Ullevål Hospital, Ilagløtt housing for the elderly, Jordal Amphitheatre and the Viking Hotel were all a result of the first Norwegian Olympic Games.                                        

The Games were a success, with over 500,000 spectators. Hjallis was the great Olympic champion with his three skating golds.
