Bill Demong has been competing in the international level in the Nordic Combined for 11 years. To keep such a competitive edge, it demands over 1,000 hours of training in cross-country skiing and ski jumping in a single year. In his training, Bill uses Polar RS800CX because it shows elevation profile where you can see the total elevation gain. Training computer also helps in staying in the right zones especially during interval training. Bill’s coaches utilize Polar ProTrainer 5 software in analyzing his training. It helps understand the training visually and aids the planning of Bill’s upcoming training. Such information helps him prepare for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, where Bill aims to win individual and team gold.
