Does anyone know if all Norway athelets are sick asthma and have to take steroids for better performance?

Only Bjorgen of the norwegian women.

As a matter of fact, 40% of the top skiing athletes got asthma.

That is, cross country. I have no idea about the other ones, but I've never heard anything about it. I do know that our top 2 women (Berger and Flatland) biathlon athletes don't have asthma, and that our top cross country (Northug) is fit as a fiddle aswell.

It's hard to find any list, but I'm looking for it.

There should be special championshps for skiers suffering from asthma. There is no sense to organize championships for healthy and disabled skiers.The second ones take forbiden medicines.
