Synopsis: From his hometown in Vermont, to Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park, to Native villages in Alaska, Matt Johnson pursues his dream of competing in the Olympics. After dirty tricks by unscrupulous competitors make him almost miss being named to the Olympic biathlon team, Matt is thrust into the glamorous world of international competition. Here he finds that there is a dark side to the international circuit as well; the demands of sponsors, national pride and individual pride, combined with the insatiable appetite of the news media create sometimes irresistable pressures on coaches, athletes and sports officials. Always in the background, hovering over everything is the specter of illegal doping. Experience the inner world of Olympic competition, with seven-time Olympic participant John Morton’s A MEDAL OF HONOR.   This powerful novel peers into the Olympic Games in northern Italy while telling a story of enormous courage, dedication and international intrigue. A MEDAL OF HONOR  is about people driven to excel and win.  It shows why athletes, coaches and administrators feel compelled to push the envelope, sometimes beyond ethical and moral limits.

About the Author: John Morton has participated in seven Winter Olympic Games as an athlete, coach, biathlon team leader, and most recently in Salt Lake City, as Chief of Course for the biathlon events. After eleven years as Head Coach of Men’s Skiing at Dartmouth College, he wrote Don’t Look Back, a comprehensive guide to cross-country skiing. He is a commentator for Vermont Public Radio, and designs Nordic trails from his home in rural Vermont.
