Johan Olsson's Training

on .

On July 16, the Swedish Newspaper Dagens Nyheter interviewed Johan Olsson. He had just received the prestigious Queen Victoria prize for his outstanding 50K win at the World Championships. Devon Kershaw and many International Sports Journalists called it the greatest 50K in the history of the sport. Johan will receive his prize on the island of Oeland and it will be his only break in his tough training program.

KIKKAN RANDALL

on .

Kikkan Randall has been unbelievable this season. Both my wife Anita and I are very upset that she is not getting the general media recognition that she should in the United States. The New York Times, the Boston Globe and all major newspapers should be praising her, but we rarely see anything but a small notice of her accomplishments in the New York Times or Boston Globe.

CHANGED TRAINING PROGRAM

Marcus Hellner had a very disappointing season. After winning two Olympic Gold in 2010 and Gold at the 2011 World Championships Marcus was very flat this year finishing just 8th overall on the World Cup Circuit.
