FasterSkier is pleased to announce two new bloggers, biathlete and cross-country racer Mark Johnson, who is studying abroad in Norway, and two-time Olympian, and self described “jacked-up-old-man” Duncan Douglas.
Duncan raced at both the '92 and '94 Olympics as a biathlete and also competed in three World Championships, with a top result of 21st in Lahti in 1991.
Most impressively, however, is that Duncan is now almost 43, has four kids and works as an anesthesiologist, and is still very very fast. He has taken the concept of the Master skier and raised it to a whole new level. Duncan will bring his years of experience and his unique perspective as an elite athlete and a doctor to his new FasterSkier blog. Check out his first posts here:

Mark Johnson is a student at Williams College and is currently studying abroad in Norway. The Grand Rapids, Minnesota native will be reporting from Lillehammer, where he trains and races with Team Statkraft Lillehammer. His posts thus far have provided insight into the Norweigan training methods and technique, as well as keeping us up to date on his own impressive competitive performances. Mark's blog is also a great way to pick up a bit of Norweigan – as each post is titled in the language, with a translation provided in the post body!
